Fantastic! You can almost smell the steam. When we attend the forties events at places like Bury and Pickering, the sound and smell of these trains really bring it all to life. A lovely photo.

Looks like the wonderful Riley Black 5's, are taking the load again. These two are always working as all locomotives should be to keep them in fine fettle.
The pair seem to be doing more and more rescue work as others fail, I don't know if this is the case but wouldn't be surprised.
