Not the original but the name 'Puffing Billy' seems rather apt. The steam makes a very useful frame, Bill.

Lovely - engine and steam.
I do think it could do with some brass wording on the front though.

This does the engine real justice. Yesterday's didn't convey the power of this grand machine.
The strong red also makes a bold statement in this composition.

A fine capture, Bill - they always look more interesting like this than static with no steam Wink

Good one, Bill. I liked the "south paw" image but this one really does it for me. That steam brings this shot to life. Very nice exposure here -- keeping both steam and engine nice and clear.

A superb capture. Southampton Common is covered in snow and it looks so pretty.

Glad the engine peeped out from behind the steam, allowing you to capture this lovely image.

I really like the strong profile of the left side of the engine as it emerges from the steam SmileSmile

Luv steam train images with plenty of steam, this one is superb, great composition and pov, exposure spot on, the red of the front bumper really lifts the image to another level.
Well done, Bill.

Interesting sequel of railway images - of which this one is a gem. Like all the steam around this beauty in black and red.
