Omaha - Goodrington

By Ericsamson
Two images of Omaha pulling the Paignton to Kingswear train on the Dartmouth Steam Railway heritage line at Goodrington Sands. These are not individual captures but stills taken from a video shot on an iPhone.

Many thanks for the very kind responses to yesterday's bit of daftness - much appreciated as always!

All the best for the week ahead, G.

I like the low angle you have chosen for your image, which nicely silhouettes it against the sky, and complete with a great plume of smoke. A necessary feature of any steam train, the bigger, the better!

I bet none of those huts has a Royal Doulton tea service with hand-painted periwinkles on a shelf. It would soon be all over the floor when that beast thunders past. Good as an agitation cycle on a washing machine, mind you...

There's nothing like the vibration of a steam train to help get those wet trunks and bikini bottoms off, Graham.
Two great images here.

That's not bad stuff, Graham, considering taken from video stills on the iPhone 👍 Like both, but lead's the winner for me 😃
It's a very enjoyable train trip from Paignton to Kingswear (and back again of course!), last did it in 2000 I believe it was 😃

Own up Graham. You were really filming those sheds, weren't you.
Planning a bit of an upgrade for your garden retreat ? SmileSmile...
Careful with those, the locks are all on the outside. Could give
Matron a few ideas if she spots that.
Happy to notch up 30 ticks in the box for you. Jolly good.
