The 'Duke of Gloucester' sits patiently on Platform 3 at Bolton St station, Bury.
Finally managed to get out for a few shots yesterday and headed over to a steam gala weekend on the East Lancs Railway. for summat different.
Decided to join in [this time] with Fran's song title/shot title idea, so this one is from Guns 'n Roses first album 'Appetitie for Destruction'.
Enjoy your weekends everyone, cheers for dropping by.

Some of them were ... it was just the other idiots flashing away from 40+ feet with there in-built flash units set to Anti Red Eye ... hmmm, wonder how there's turned out??
Excellents image managed to get some great details in
I really like this, it looks really olde worlde.
I think this would make a really nice image on a card.
I can see you and Fran competting with Bev....
Lovely Image Paul
Ta Steve glad you think so.
Cheers too Lee
Excellent work Paul, proper classy!
Nice one Paul, love the idea of a steam train needing a red eye flash
Cheers Paul, glad you like it!!!
LOL Gary, some people will never learn will they???
You deck someone.......never...we just don't have things like that up here...lol
A stunning shot Paul,
love the detail and the lighting,
We are waiting for the Duke to come to the WSR,then Bevzed and i will be chuffed to bit's.
A very good shot. Love the colours.
We don't down here either Petra ... unless there's a just cause of course
LOL - 'chuffed' to bits ... like it Claire!!!
Thanks also Tanya,
Love the light and derail Paul.
A nice Freudian slip there Gill - derail ... LOL
Beautiful image, I especially like the glow in the cab of the boiler. Fireman probably brewing up.
greta image, Well done,
Cheers guys, in all honesty Mark the engine had finished its service for the day and was standing there for people to take shots in an organised shoot. We got off before it started though, as it was £15 per head - but there were far too many 'idiots' there with there little compacts firing their flashes for my liking ... plus they had no etiquette and would simply cross into your shot and stand there!!!
Thanks everyone, done much better for a Sunday steam post than I thought.
Excellent shot there Paul despite the hassle to get it!
I'm not particularly a train fan but this photo has bags of quality and atmoshpere to it. Nice one.
excellent Paul, really evokes nostalgia
That is what you have isn't it Paul?

great picture i like how you have detail inside the cabin lit by the open firebox door
Great Paul, HDR ?? love the diagonal elements.
Great lighting and atmosphere Paul.
these steam trains look so much better at night,id love to have a go at taken some night shots of these this looks just fantastic paul,
Such nostalgia,love this.
Excellent Paul and not a tree in sight. The perspective and processing combine to create a most impressive image.
Timeless image. Like the comp. Very nicely done.
Good night shot of steam, not easy but full of excitment Paul. Ron.
Lovely exposure Paul,especially for that steam,super detail,good colour & a strong composition.
I'm pleased you didn't get into a fracas though
Nice Shot ,I went to fridays evening shoot at the shed that was quite well organised and everyone worked well together ,wasnt sure about sat as one or two had said it would be a free for all so didnt go looks like i was possibly right
Great image, well captured.
Got EC written all over it A cracker mate.
Blimey, cheers you lot. Just been to the golf club to drop summat off and 'socialise' for a couple of hours to see your fabulous comments. I will answer a coupl if I may:
Nick, no, straight shot mate ... 30 secs @ f8, no time for HDR at all.
Dave, I think you were probably right, but I need to ask Graysta if that was the case.
Phil - EC - I wish mate, just happy it's done this well
EC my bum...Photo of the week, month even... simply stunning Paul
LOL Dave, I love your enthusiam mate!!!
Like the glow from the cab Paul.
Bet you came that close........
Red eye for train..maybe if it was Thomas the Tank Engine!!
back again ...just love looking at this one paul ,,well i do love nightshots don't i,
everything is spot on,, defo photo of the week for me anyway,,
Class written all over it. A stunning shot Paul
72 clicks on a sunday, WOW. i can see why though mate. this is bloody awsome my friend, love that sky colour. eh you never know when you might need red eye reduction LOL.
nice one paul.
Its all been said already, a suberb image.
Crikey, cheers you lot, still doing far better than I thought it would/could on a Sunday.
Hope you all had a great weekend,
I will add my two penniworth..it's very good! Very atmospheric shot, with superb detail. Did you manage to get a shot in 'landscape' ? Andy I
Cheers Andy, yes I did ... will possibly post that another time though
Nightrain, Steve Strange and Visage.
A cracker Paul, get my camera back after a month away, cant wait.
You both got some shots then eh.
The blowing smoke makes the train appear to be moving through the station, nice work.
All the very best Paul,
Its very very good....
No EC! Shameful!
Cheers guys ... my guess is you Jinxed it Phil
Flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash flash.............
Really nice image considering the circumstances.
PMSL Ian, you still not got over your flashing habit?? ... I though the Police caution would've deterred you for now
An excellent image, even more so considering the thoughtless crowd!
Cheers mate. For a bunch of like-minded individuals, I couldn't believe how selfish they could be!!!
Well composed with stepped signals and terrace though front end of Duke gets a little lost as a result.
Shame not an opportunity to meet as standing in the crowd waiting
This was probably the best angle I could get I'm afraid Robin and you're right about the front getting a little lost. The shots from the front had far too much distracting information in the bgnd - namely other togs and cars - for my liking.
Yes, shame we didn't get to meet, Graham mentioned you were around somewhere.
The angle does work well Paul. It's a shame when people don't have any photo 'etiquette' - would wind me up something cronic!
They're probably more enthusiasts than 'togs, but a little common sense doesn't go amiss
Absolutely bloody awesome.
Cheers Pete, glad you think so!!!
This is amazing Paul, love it love it love it
Discounted rate for enthusiastic customers Gaz
Very nice you can almost sense the engine wanting to be let off the leash.
