Train driver and his massive steam engine, at Bury station. I thought this had a bit of a 'waiting for the troops to load up, 1916' look, hence the toning.

Very good Steve. I especially like the way that the steamy background serves to highlight the driver. The toning is nicely sympathetic too. All in all this is excellent photography and post-processing.

Not been on here for a while, I see you've been busy.
Not your usual subject but you have certainly captured the moment well - good timless picture.
