Departure

By Tim70_99
I've been looking at this one for years and I've always found it evocative, I can almost smell the smoke and hear the steam hissing from the Jinty's (the loco nearest the camera) glands and sizzling safety valves as tourists battle for a final photo. Oh well. Hope someone else likes it too, If not let me know what I can do to improve the next one.

Train is departing from Llangollen on the Llangollen Railway and is headed by GWR 7822 "Foxcote Manor" and LMS "Jinty" 47383. Image is scanned from negative film, probably Kodacolor 200.

You have done ok here for a scanned image, the candid nature of the shot is good and the interest of the two engines adds to an interesting shot.
