photoblog image MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 3 #2

MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 3 #2

North Yorks.Special

I posted a colour shot taken from this same spot, at Grosmont, on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on 9th.December.  This locomotive is somewhat smaller than the previous one being an 0-6-0 J52 tank engine of the Great Northern Region.

Designed by Henry Ivatt this engine was built in 1899 and after being scrapped it was purchased privately from British Railways before becoming part of the National Collection on static display at Locomotion, Shildon.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

Great stuff, Brian!
I am a sucker for shots of steam locos...working or not.

I made a small eBook of images of a badly aged one I found in Bangkok... check out: http://www.all-my-world.com/Rail&Rust%20eBook/
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Ray, as for your link what a lovely set of shots of this very sorry little engine, how could they let it get like that.

Lovely old train Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Aussie.
The Railway children springs to mind Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Bill.
A strange softness to this fine image, Brian. Just like a toy really.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, some of these small tank engines do have a sort of character about them.
This is wonderful Brian. I like the softness of the image!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I still think that old film B&W is more appealing than Photoshop style conversions which seem to be a bit harsh very often.
I agree with what they say about this image Brian. Good one!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Ron.

I suspect these used to haul the commuter trains out of Kings Cross Brian
Brian Walbey: No doubt they did in their early days Chris, I think they also worked as the station pilot.

Ah.. my favourite standard gauge railway! I like the near-buried trackwork on the right. Great atmosphere to this.
