Smashing engine shot, Cliff.

Would it benefit from a rotate to the left by a degree or two....?

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Classic view, Cliff. I see you were cursed with a typical bleached-out English sky as were we today. Not much you could do about that.
My son's just come home from watching "Oliver Cromwell" on the mainline in Somerset. But he doesn't take photographs!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Yes a common problem Andrew, a miserable day it was her this morning, had to bracket to make sure one came out!.

Hope your son enjoyed seeing Cromwell, I`m surprised he doesn't take photos though!!.

Good one of the green Duchess Cliff. I've yet to see it green. In recent years its been in red and black, the only authentic original colour it needs is early BR blue.

Good choice of viewpoint to show her off and nice to see you are revelling in your second childhood!

Second childhood Peter!!......I`m on my fourth

Thanks for comments David and Peter, I must say though, I much prefer the Duchess in Crimson lake or black than the green!.
