photoblog image 4498 at Woodthorpe

4498 at Woodthorpe

I promised you on Monday a second picture of one of Sir Nigel Gresley's wonderful A4 locomotives.

This is the locomotive that was named after Sir Nigel, its B.R.number being 60007, and it is seen here having just passed under the road bridge at Woodthorpe on the Great Central Railway between Loughborough and Quorn.

This is a scan from an enprint hence that lack of full quality, and I can't even remember what camera I took the photo on quite a few years ago.

Just look at the fuel that train is burning. Nice one Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, the offical term for this type of black smoke is "clag" by the way.
Classic train shot Brian. Worth seeing even if it has lost a bit as a scan.
Old but still worth a good look Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Chris.
The dirty British steam engine is a replacement for ''the dirty British coaster''
