They don't make 'em like they used too. Pity. I hope they preserve them properly.
Fantastic, done many hours on here all seasons train spotting.
My favorite subject "live steam" thankyou for recording the event!
It looks like its been going through plenty of insects.
The old against the new,lovely steam loco but how dirty to work on
nice shot john
What a fantastic picture, brings back so many memories. Thanks for posting John.
Beautiful, wish I could have been there to see and hear it roll in to the station.
Nice one John, love the steam locos. What time was the photo taken? The sky looks quite dark and the station platform lights are on.
aint old stuff great?
Good picture! I keep calling hubby in to look at various "photo a day" pictures. .This one he will really enjoy....he loves steam trains.!
In reply to Honk, it was taken about 7:40 last Saturday night so it was dark with the canopy lights providing the illumination and Nikon providing the technology!!! In reply to Shirl, hearing it pulling out of the station was absolutely incredible and made me wish I had taken a recorder. Thanks for the comments everyone.
Great shot. Those were the days...
Oh thats a great shot, how do we find out when trains like this are coming into Wigan, I would love to see and hear one again.
In reply to Jean, Google "Steam Railtours" but do watch out for updates. This train was originally scheduled to go through Bolton!
