Double Heading at Dorset Steam Rally

By JuBarney
A few years ago friends were double heading to pull the "heavy load" (this time a low loader with a steam engine aboard) at "Watford Gap" and on up the hill in the playpen at Dorset. Lots of shadows for today.

The driver of the first engine, Susie, is Charlie who has recently been on chemotherapy but two weeks ago he was able to have an 8 hr. operation, and the good news is that he is home again.

This is a very small file size and I'm not sure why as the original seems small too!

The second with all smoke, must be doing the bulk of the pulling. Good composition giving a good sweep of all the vehicles on show.

A shovel full of dusty coal will do that, whereas Charlie's engine smoke is white and doesn't show up! But I agree the second engine is working the hardest.

A fine composition and capture, Ju, had to be in mono 👍 Lots of lovely smoke in there too! Always loved the smell of the old steam locos (and still do) churning out stuff like this when I were a lad, though the nose doesn't work as efficiently these days...👍
