The Engineers Inspection

By Arvorphoto    
A complete change of scenery
Prior to heading to the Isle of Skye, I spent three days on the Talyllyn Railway.

Here the Officers Special - Engineering Inspection train rolls along the Fathew Valley with No.6 providing the traction. This 0-4-0WT was built in 1918 by Andrew Barclay & Co. Ltd. for the Airservice Construction Corps. From 1921 until 1945 it worked at the RAF railway at Calshot Spit, Southampton. So to mark it's 100th anniversary, it was given this new livery reflecting its RAF heritage.

As always, many thanks to those of you who have taken the time to look, vote, comment and give their awards.
Please feel free to offer critique. Another viewpoint is always welcome

Great shot with the wonderfully restored locomotive working his way through a beautiful landscape.

So well composed with the line of the train matching the line of the distant water and the smoke linking the two.
