Hi all

Thanks for the comments on my last upload ,this one was taken late saturday evening during a break from the rain as Black5 45407 returns from its round trip to Carlisle from Manchester .

The train is seen north of Horwich Parkway passing the former Horwich Loco works , Blackrod Church can be seen in the distance .

The sun broke though the clouds as it approached giving it some side lighting .

I hope its not lost its atmosphere in the resize

Hope you like it

Ah now I know what I missed, planned to make the long trek north but bleak forecast of heavy rain made me give up, S & C is not the best place in driving rain.

I like the shot

Timeless, the poles and wires add to the whole as a mono capture, excellent angle. Absolutely love this,

Much better than the colour version with the extra contrast giving it much more impact
