David,
I'm not generally a great fan of rail shots but...

This is a very, very good photograph.

The sweep of the carriages & the lines of the rails, the black & white of the exhaust(?) turning to the soft grey in the distance & the shine on the black paintwork of the engine....

Thanks for letting us see.

regards,
Coker.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Nicely smoky & pleasing sidelighting from a spot I have come to know well.
