44871 Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 locomotive

By Toobi_Won
4871 is an LMS Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 locomotive, originally numbered 4871 by the LMS, it had 40000 added to its number under British Railways after nationalisation in 1948. 44871 was one of the last locomotives to be withdrawn from service, surviving until 1968, the last year of steam on British Railways. Seen here arriving to take on water.
Sky was too blue on colour version, so it was given the antique look.

A very nicely presented image in which the point of view works a treat and the processing adds a lovely touch of authenticity. I know what Annette means but ... I do quite like that water tank! SmileSmileSmile
