'Going for it!'

By limmy62
Another shot taken yesterday of the Stanier Duchess, accelerating at speed over Trent Jn on a charter.
Not a lot of respect for photographers however, with a rake of stock in a livery remeniscent of the 'multi coloured swap shop'.
I have however resisted any mods to the coaching livery, going instead, for authenticity.
Thanks for viewing

Top class, the massive cloud of smoke adds much, great position to get it from.
