not many people on platforms to see a steam train thunder through
It looks stopped to me and I would have though they would have been more people watching on the platform.
nice shot john . got you on video taking the pic
What lovely memories that brings up, I spent hours on that station waiting for a train, sometimes to go North to Blackpool, as a child. Sometimes to go North to Dumfries to visit my brother & sometimes to go south to visit my Dad's family in Kent & finally to go to College.
A GWR Castle Class. They were rare visitors to this neck of the woods even in the heydey of steam. Nevertheless it's a welcome visitor
Another good loco photo John well done I like it. The smoke trail from the stack shows that the train is on the move.
Derek how are you, never knew you were a steam railway buff, you learn something every day. John, stopped or steaming through who cares, good pic, another piece of nostalgia on record.
