The Old Guard

By Flashman01
During the summer, Special steam train excisions run to various seaside towns, harking back to the many summers special trains of the days of steam. Times have changed but thanks to a few dedicated steam enthusiasts rescuing locomotives from the scrap man`s blow torch, and enterprising tour companies, These scenes are once more re-created regularly in the summer months.
This scene is not staged in any way but I was lucky in that the Guard happened to be in the right place at the right time, and splendidly dressed in period uniform.
The train is headed by Ex GWR " 6024 King Edward I" and was heading from Bristol Temple Meads to Kingswear.

A wonderful timeless b&w image, very much like the composition of the image. But I would like to know was it all just one image, or was it a number of images put together. Grin Tongue Wink .

Hi Anthony1928,
This was just one shot, I did clone out some background distraction, and do some e-burning and dodging, but nothing in the main subjects was altered, even the steam is exactly as it was.
