Uckfield Mainline

By mark1309  
Taken this morning 27/10/2007 @1046, shows the LMS Black 5 "'The Lancashire Fusilier" on the mainline only a couple of minutes from Uckfield, East Sussex.
A wonderful site, people tell me its 40 years plus since a steam traim was on the line.
This picture, due to the bland sky, has had the HDR treatment to hopefully give a more pleasing picture.
Thanks for looking, Mark.

Great portrait of the Blackie.
Slightly puzzled over why there is no third electric rail. This is the Southern region is it not, or have you manipulated it Mark ?

Thanks everyone for looking.
Hi clive, well spotted re the third rail, no I havent manipulated it at all, other than the HDR treatment due to the dull sky. The Uckfield line is one of the few (maybe the only one, I'm not sure) that is not electrified in Sussex, its only 3 or 4 years ago that we had the old "Thumpers" providing the service on the line, one of the last Thumpers to be withdrawn I think.
