9351 @ Lydeard

By clur
I personally love this image,with all the tree's surrounding the engine,BUT thats not allways to everyone's taste (is it now)!
This is a double header but i can't remember what is behind it,maybe 3850 or 3802.

All comments welcome good/bad.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice image only spoilt by appearing to be over-sharpened. Smile

Very nice image, but as Mike said, looks over sharpened.

Oh, to be in Somerset right now! Got a touch of the winter blues at the moment, and your images bring back many happy memories for me, Claire. Thank you. Carol

Agree slight over sharpened but good comp can understand why you like this, engine in behind is a Castle Class so my guess is 5051 Earl Bathurst, the giveaway is the elbow steam pipes as it is certainly not a king Smile

To be true Great Western the Castle should be at the front as it is the train engine on other railways such as the Midland the pilot engine would go on the front as illustrated here

A nice diagonal composition, and I personally see nothing wrong with vegetation in the photo!
