Recognise this as at the GCR if i'm not mistaken. Twin tracks and a real feeling for the age of steam, superb image Alan.

Sorry Ron. This was taken on the Calder Valley main line at Ravensthorpe where former L & Y diverges from the main line to Leeds. I'll put the location on the map,

Nostalgia indeed, takes me back to my childhood.
Mono looks good for this one, and I love the way you've composed it, especially seeing the carriages coming round the bend, and all that billowing atmospheric smoke.
