I love these Great Western 2-8-0s, David. This is a fine study which shows its power. Pity we can't here that two cylinder exhaust note.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Lovely capture of the whole "steam" thing, especially the GW "bark", "bark" as opposed to "chuff", "chuff".

What a magnificent shot! Difficult to detect just how close to the track you were!

Paul, because I was using the 200mm lens I was further back than it appears. Also it looks as if I was standing near the middle of the tracks , in fact I was well to the right of the picture on the outside of the curve.

X2, also, the lens and POV makes the resultant engine image appear to just break out from the tunnel. T
