Very well composed steam loco/ train shot, all that billowing smoke so atmospheric.

Agree with the composition. Beautiful shot of the loco on full power.
Pity about the electric lines.
Well done.

Your trademark billowing steam. Another good angle and capture.

Sadly the over head wires and posts are here and we have to work around them.Not ideal and it does cause problems but if you catch it right with the exhaust covering the pole behind it works OK.Thanks for all the comments much appreciated Simon.
