Nicely shot Peter, you don't often see her with one carriage or less, I was fortunate to shoot her a couple of years ago on the Severn Valley when she was on her own towards Kidderminster.

A movement like this is likely to be the engine and support crew moving between home-base (The NRM) and a preserved railway for an extended stay or to rendezvous with a rake of coaches to run as a day trip on the following day.

It has been in Dorset for three weeks and was on its way to London. I saw on local websites it was passing through Woking and it was too good an opportunity to miss. Plenty of folk out to see it. it was a good job i grabbed an early vantage point on the bridge as it soon got quite packed. She arrived earlier than expected as they cancelled a stop at Brookwood at the last minute due to overcrowding on the platforms.

A great subject nicely framed and looks good in mono.

Thats nice.

It went through my local station a couple of weeks ago and I totally forgot about it. Kicked myself a couple of times tbh.

Edit: Infact I just realised after reading your post again that I probably missed it on the return from Swanage as well? ... do we have a banging my head against a brick wall emoji?
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Yes this is loco plus support coach heading home after a sojourn at the seaside. But what on earth is that on the smokebox door??

It is a wreath of predominantly white and yellow flowers. i don't know the significance either.

I'm sure I've told you all this before. Just to make all you train boughs jealous. As a child in the 40's I used to travel on it on LNER from Newcastle central station. Also one time with a little time to spare before departure my dad took up to the engine and the driver lifted me up onto the footplate. 4/5 years old?
Are you all green with envy. In July we are going on a 4 day holiday on the little trains of Norfolk so I hopefully will get some decent photos then.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Nice shot and it works in B&W.

I saw her for the only time, hauling the Cathedral Express through Plymouth 6 months ago, it had another steam locomotive behind it to help with the gradients down here.

Lovely crop, with the hand giving a good sense of scale. Great colours, too!
