Barrie Forbes at the North Yorks Moors Railway

Photo Information
He appears to be at prayer which is appropriate as he's photographing a loco called Eric Treacy who was one of Britain's finest railway photographers and also the Bishop of Wakefield.

Look at the kit he's carrying as well, David! Not exactly travelling light.
Best wishes,

Probably a lot more steam when Barrie tried to stand up with that load on his back! Nice to see the NYMR being photographed! Great shot David!
