From the mini EPZ meet at Grosmont several weeks ago, this is early morning when the engines are preparing for the day ahead.

I have a mono sitting on the hard drive of this that I quite like that 'may' get an airing at some stage - Imight put it in as a variant.

All comments welcome.

Not normally a fan of train shots, but this is excellent! Maybe a few of the colours are a tiny bit hot for me, but on the whole superb Smile

A very good looking shot indeed ... the orange backlighting and detail left and right are most pleasing. I'm almost tempted to go out and buy an anorak Wink

No Caleb, it must be an optical illusion as I used the front "fender ???"
as the reference point to straighten the image. Its probably the clutter that gives it that feel.

We had our anoraks on again at the weekend but the engine shed at Grosmont looks a little different now due to the new lights, which do not give out the warm glow of the old ones like this shows, which is a bit of a shame for us photographs but that said it helps the work force to see better.

This is a super image I like lots
