Passing Townsend Fold

 

Another year, another steam gala. Stanier Black 5s 44871 and 45407 double head the train from Rawtenstall on the East Lancashire Railway during the first steam gala of the Year.

Beautiful work, Les.

And the double-header seems to be giving you four times as much smoke.
Les Auld: Indeed it does Ray, thanks for the comment.

Well Les you have a fantastic set of the age of steam shots love them all. Each one is a day in the life of British Rail.
Les Auld: I do seem to chase the trains a fair amount Peter, thanks for the comment.
Oh! A double header Les, bringing back the schoolboy in me! A great shot Les, you are the steam Meister!
Les Auld: many thanks Frank, it is a grand sight.

Superlative steam splendour Les!
Les Auld: Thank you Fred.
This looks a good spot for lineside shots Les, good to see a double-header.
Les Auld: One of the best but only when the locomotive is pointing south. Thanks for the comment Brian.
