Caddaford Curve

Photo Information
Engine '47406' rounding the corner at Caddaford on the South Devon Railway bound for Buckfastleigh Station.

'47406' was built by the Vulcan Foundry. First based at Warrington and Crewe South, in 1928 she started an long period of work at Carnforth, which lasted for 32 years. From 1960 many more allocations were made, ending at Edge Hill in 1967. Delivered to Woodham Brothers in the summer of 1968, all mechanical parts had been sold by the time she was rescued by the Rowsley Locomotive Trust in 1983. In 1989, owner Roger Hibbert took her to Loughborough, where restoration was completed in early 2010. Boiler ticket expires in 2019.

I like the curved lane of train and the magic and coloured atmosphere due to HDR

What a great shot. If that engine's still there I'm heading south next weekend!
Best wishes,

Looks like an image from a fairytale! You know I am a fan of your pictures and this one is no exception. I don't usually go for trains, but this one is superb.

I am very grateful for all the thoughtful and encouraging feedback Been wanting to get a shot at this location for some time - so many potential opportunities for photography in South Devon, if only I had more free time to indulge in taking photos (tough with two young kids and the hours I work - but I relish the opportunities to try and connect with the landscape)
