I'd have to dig deep into the slide collection to find shots of Linda. I was just reading yesterday about the opening of the WHR - must ride it sometime.

Great shot for a conversion, AOV also helps give a feel of the machine's weight and movement

A pleasant mono shot with a remarkable history behind that I had to learn to satisfy my curiosity. I am glad that I did, Andrew.

Lovely shot, Andrew. I took one close up of her in Porthmadog in the rain, but this is better.

Great shot.

Thanks everyone. I took several of this loco as it waited to complete the journey, but this was the best, I think.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Me too. I've got colour slides of this engine from years ago. The black and white works extremely well in this shot. I like the craggy mountain background to this engine working in its natural habitat.
