Looks like the Fat Controller has lost some weight. Nice black and white, seems to be the flavour of the month.

Thanks chaps,

There are in fact two ex-GWR coaches still there, just out of shot on the left which volunteers use. May be the same ones, Tom.

Thanks John,

You must come down: there's so much to photograph in West Somerset, by no means only trains. You really don't have to travel far.

Nostalgia - This could have been taken in the 60's, lovely composition with a lot going on in the photograph - well taken.
Thank goodness for preservation societies.
Not everything in life is Black & White, If only it were!

Many thanks to you all!

So glad you appreciate the age of steam. It's only the beginning of the season but I'll try and show restraint!
