Right at you! Like the way you "place" this train in the frame. And there always seems to be steam in a David Trout image.Like.

Indeed! I knew whose photo it was the second I saw the thumbnail.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Are you sure they weren't getting ready for an approaching tunnel, David?

I recognise that as a long shot taken by you standing on "The Cob" and having ridden the line from Porthmadog to Blaneau FFestiniog, I don't think you reach a tunnel until much higher up.

I like the immediacy of the head-on view and the wisps of steam you have captured.

They had quite a few miles to go before the first tunnel on the line Peter.
