Stunning shot Les! A fabulous old engine and always great to see smile
Les Auld: But younger than I am Frances, thanks for the comment.
Terrific image Les! I love how the smoke is billowing up, joining the clouds in the sky!
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Elizabeth, appreciate it.
According to wiki this is one of only two engines still in use in the UK with Caprotti valve gear
Les Auld: 71000 The Duke being the other Bill, thanks for the comment.
Another evocative steam shot Les, excellent.
Les Auld: Thanks frank, those were the days when steam ruled.
Fine shot Les. I'd planned to go to the MRC this year but didn't make it.
Les Auld: Not one of my favourite railways Brian, but it was a challenge to shoot. Thanks for the comment.
Les, your retro treatment of old trains is simply excellent!
Les Auld: Thanks Fred, although I think the loco is younger than me, being build in 1956.
