Nice one John. This engine was built for heavy freight haulage but it seems to get around plenty on express passenger trains these days.

I know nothing about the technicalities of these giant iron beasts, but I never tire of seeing images (this good) of them.
I remember the soot-in-the-eye when looking out of the window of a moving train (always look back, not forward!) & the wonderful smell of the smoke....AHH, those were the days.....
Best Regards, Larry.

All the gear & no idea.

I was drooling over an 8f on Monday... very pleasing shot.
Best wishes,

Andrew
