Love it. That's the only GWR engine I've seen on the main line this far North Andrew. I got photos of it at York and Carlisle, but not yet in the North East at Durham or Newcastle.

Really great view point, skilled and well executed throughout. I'm getting to like trains after joining this group.

Thanks folks.
Gray, no one is in a better place to capture steam images. North Wales has some wonderful narrow-gauge railways.
Best wishes,
