After a Hard Days Work

 

The footplate crew of the ex British Rail Britannia class locomotive 70013, Oliver Cromwell, take a short rest before returning to the shed at Loughborough on the Great Central Railway, The day was long, from 7.45am to 6.00pm racing up and down the line on a Travelling Post Office charter on the line, finishing with a night shoot at Loughborough station. All in all a grand day out even allowing for the dismal Wednesday weather.

British Rail at its best, great capture and well worth the effort.
Les Auld: 230 mile round trip, a 20 hour day and many photographs but,a s you say, well worth it Peter. Thanks for the comment.
Nice shot Les, love those Brit's!
Les Auld: Great locos indeed Frank, thanks for the comment.
A cracking image Les, everything in place.
Les Auld: Indeed so Martin, thanks for the comment.
Excellent image .. You must let me know when they open days like this at Loughborough .... mind you I expect there are zillions of snappers to get in my way. ;-)
Les Auld: This was a private charter Richard, only about 20 photographers left y the end of the day, but there is a steam gala at the end of the month with the millions of visitors. Thanks for the comment.

Got to be one of the best, if not the best picture I have seen at Loughborough Les, the atmosphere is terrific.
Les Auld: It was a good night for it Brian, thanks for the comment.
Oh, I really like this shot... especially with the red colour & lighting.
