Remember the Beatles?

the film A Hard Day's Night?
This 'Hymek' engine is the original from the film - the 'Fab 4' were running up and down the platform at this station with this train in the platform (Ringo also rode his bicycle down the platform). There were quite a few toggers around each time this came through.
Not many shots with so few hi-vi's in the way so this might be the best of the bunch!

These things are filthier than the steam engines, look at that exhaust!

Again another great Bevshot !!
I think the 'Toggers' and the 'Ferroequinologists' leaning out of the windows make this picture work well.

I'm not a train fan but love the curve in this composition, the well placed signal and the general detail - lots to look at

Well, I like it with those togs and all the people looking out the windows. Gives the whole a nice, happy atmosphere.

Interesting information with this shot. It would be better without the figures in bright colours.
