Hi all

Took this shot this morning in the rain as Black 5 45407 thunders past Blackrod Station nr Horwich Lancashire ,heading a Cumbrian mountain express from Manchester to Carlisle Return .

I think it was worth getting wet for

hope you like it

Great shot, David. Though would like to see just a little more of the plume of steam above, and a touch more space to the right. I hope you don't mind my saying that. Just my personal preference.
A great feeling of power. And good detail. Worth the wait. Well done.

I agree about it being worth while getting wet. The rails and track bed look different in the rain. Excellent picture.
