Hi all
Oliver-Cromwell-70013-Scarborough Spa Express heading to Scarborough in the pouring rain ,taken near the Maltings in my lunch time on Thursday 14 Aug

I was lucky to be with 3 Network rail workmen one did comment that if he had known it was a steamer coming he would have put a warning flag up & it would have slowed to a snails pace, I remarked No you should have done it 1 mile down the track then it would have had full steam here accelerating that would have been the superb shot

I was stood at a farm gate where a track goes over the rails I had the camera resting on the gate as it was a slowish shutter speed

Thanks for the C&Cs on previous photos
