Another fine capture in your line-side style, John.

But do you think the fireman will get a rollicking for the waste of steam?

Thanks Peter, I hope the fireman doesn't get a rollicking, after all it felt very refreshing on such a hot day, even my K20D got Christened

The Duchess did a lot of blowing off at Carlisle later John. It was held up for ages by a conked out freight train on the main line.
Lovely action shot.
