A wonderful study. I do like A4s.
Best wishes,

Certainly was a warm one John but well worth turning out for

A fine capture of a lovely locomotive.

A great photo, captured in all its glory.

I don't think we have ever seen this loco on the South Coast, however her 'sister' loco A4 60019 Bittern (currently re-numbered & painted as Dominion of New Zealand) was used last week to haul the Dorset Coast Express from London to Weymouth.

Nice perspectivic shot. I particularly like the the well-chosen view angle.

An imposing view and nicely composed to see the full length of the train.
