Super capture, perfect in black and white (and I'm not a massive rail enthusiast, but steam can draw me in)!

This is a very interesting effect you have created with the light. I have been sat peering at it to try and work out the time of day, but then cheated & looked at the exif.

I like the glint just catching the front of the smokebox and funnel.

Lovely piece of work, unusual too to see the loco running "tender first."

Thanks for your comments. Cedric, they have to run tender first in one direction on the Severn Valley Railway because there is no turntable. I just caught this as the train was already pulling out when I arrived at the station in Bridgnorth.

I really like your image David, you pulled it off with real skill. It has really good tonal range a great B&W well shot

Very nice black and white. If only that cheeky boxcar had buggered off out of the frame, I would have scored you higher. 8/10.
