Morning manouvres


Photo Information
Sunlight streams through the trees as railway staff manoeuvre two locomotives to work the first steam trains of the day on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway at Oxenhope in Yorkshire.
The first engine is an 1882 London North Western Railway coal tank, owned by the National Trust. Behind is a Southern Railway West Country Class loco City of Wells.
