photoblog image From The Competition Folder 6/28

From The Competition Folder 6/28

A series of images I have used in my Camera Club competitions that I have not previously posted.

 

3672 AT GROSMONT

Taken many years ago on probably my first visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Grosmont.  The locomotive is an ex War Department 2-10-0 design that has been repatriated from Greece where a quantity of these had been sent.  It has now been named Dame Vera Lynn.  Sadly the point from which I took this down near the workshops is now out of bounds to visitors.

I remember these in service, they lasted much longer than they were designed for. This might be the sole survivor
Brian Walbey: I'm not sure about being the only one left Chris but they were mighty workhorses.

Good shot Brian,when I was a kid, we called these war dept' engines, dub d's. I used to quite like their sparse style.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they were always know as dub d's Frank, but they were mighty workhorses.
Great shot, Brian! I like how the engine behind seems to be waiting patiently for its turn in the spotlight..
Brian Walbey: And that little engine in the shadows was at my local steam railway of recent times.
The old WD locos did some good service
Brian Walbey: They were real workhorses Bill.

I like this, Brian...you seem to be standing on the tracks.
Brian Walbey: Not quite Ray, but one can't get to this spot any more.
