5224 on Shed

By GlynnisFrith
This engine is owned by Pete Waterman a GWR tank engine, I took it during the autumn steam gala a couple of weeks back, its nick name is big pig & No 6619 the other GWR tank is call'd the small pig

The loco was been check out for the days work ahead, if you look to the right of the engine you can just make out the orange glow from the overalls of the person working.

I do miss the glow of the old lights not quite the same

V2 straightened a bit

Thanks for the info Andy

Maybe worth checking large

A good looking image just full of atmosphere. I have a feeling it could with just a touch of CCW rotation though.

I can smell the oil and the steam, which says a lot for these photos and the atmosphere they create.
