Local Freight

Another train photo taken at the GCR, Loughborough when I had the benefit of using a lineside pass to get close to the action.

Hopefully the slight toning gives it the feeling of an older photo.

Great little engine Brian, do the GCR still give out lineside passes these days? Toning looks just right.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. Yes passes are still available, £25 - £35 each depending on whether or not you are a member.

This is a great capture of a proud engine, love the color, give that nostalic look, I love it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I prefer it this way than as the original colour slide.
Very much so Brian...straight out of my locospotters annual!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I must look up my Condensed volume to see if this is a cop!
There is even a delicious slight softness to this that enhances the period feel even more- lovely image altogether that ticks all the right nostalgia buttons- well done!
Brian Walbey: Thanks David, I suppose Skye has never seen anything like this.
It's the definitive angle to shoot a steam train working hard and having it coming from under the bridge is an excellent extra. richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it makes a difference being able to go line-side. Have given up my pass now though.
Definitly looks like an old picture. Very nice capture!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. One of my favourite subjects.
