Images from Glasgow's Riverside Museum of Transport.
Loco 3007 was built in 1944/45 at the North British Locomotive Co. in Glasgow and was shipped to South Africa where it hauled trains for 40 years.
It then languished neglected for 20 years before being returned to the city of it's origin.

V 1: some of the moving parts in B and W (I don't know the correct terminology).
V 2: original colour version.
V 3: the best shot I could manage of the loco.

Many thanks to all who commented on Long and Winding Way, and with special thanks to Pam {mashwood10}, Trev {TrevBatWCC} and Phil {phil_j} for their User Awards which are so much appreciated.

Ronnie.

It is difficult to get good clear images of any of the vehiles but you've done very well
to eliminate most b/g distractions in V3.
The mono and original are excellent - a good crop - something I must consider on my next visit.
I don't naturally think 'part engine' but great for mono images.

Ronnie I have looked at V1 and V2 many times now and have concluded I like them both equally. Texture is brilliant and really glad you have shown us the whole engine in V3. Great set.

A strong angle and good geometry on the wheels, Ronnie. I prefer v2 of these, it's almost a toned mono with a lovely golden hue, and very 'tactile'. v3 is a fine image of the 'whole' and supports the first two well.

Reminds me of the National Railway Museum in York - it's a great day out, but these enormous locos can be a devil to get all in shot - even with a wide angle lens! Wink You've done very well in V3, Ronnie, and like the close-up of the connecting / coupling rods, I believe they are called. Think the mono works best for me...just! Wink

The isolated levers and rams, springs and sprockets "whatever they?' makes for a great observational study, one of which you have composed and crafted very well. The monochrome being the ideal tool for the said job.

"As for the train well, they are train spotters for that kinda stuff?"

The mono version for me Ronnie very closely followed by V2. You did well to get so much in shot of the engine. As a young lad I used to watch the locomotives leaving the Vulcan Foundry at Newton-le-Willows bound for Inda and many other places around the world.

That is a hard one Ronnie. Tricky to mater the reflection and the dark vs shiny contrast. Your v1does those full justice. But then the soft golden shine in v2 , the brown old cast iron and the bluish steel has its own irresistible charm.
Like them both!
