Derbyshire Duchess


Photo Information
You almost see before you the steam photographers nightmare.

Modern traction passing in front of you before the steam engine you have sought, passes by. Of course I could crop this to maintain a byegone illusion and lose the overhanging branches.

Ex LMS No. 46233 'Duchess of Sutherland' is seen passing a foot crossing north of Ambergate, with a day-trip from Sheffield (vi Derby) to Newcastle on 8th June 2013.

I hope 'John Whit' likes it as I think it has some of the immediacy of his lineside shots. Passed through David Trout's patch later too, got a shot David?

Hi Peter,

I do indeed like it, very well captured at what appears to be a good speed. It's a shame about the modern traction but it gets us all at one time or another

Thank you John.

She was working against the gradient and trying to pick up speed after a station stop just over three miles away at Belper. Hence a good display but not terrifically fast.

A great locomotive and I think, for once, you're right to keep the modern loco in shot.
Best wishes,

Andrew

She surely is a fine machine.

Thank you Andrew & Paul for looking in.
