TPO Drop At Quorn Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (21/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of 70013 Oliver Cromwell [ here ] to compare the two. This locomotive is owned by the nation via the National Railway Museum at York and was one of the group of locomotives used on the final steam hauled “Fifteen Guinea Special” on 11th.August, 1968 between Manchester and Carlisle before steam hauled services finished on the nations railway. Since then of course steam hauled excursions have been revived and 70013 is one of the most popular locomotives used.

A very impressive machine making much steam! B&w is very fitting to post the old locos!
Brian Walbey: Yes I also think they look better in B.& W.

I remember seeing 70013 moribund in Bressingham museum years ago Brian. I never imagined it would grace the main lines again
Brian Walbey: Yes I saw it at Bressingham also. It has just been overhauled at Loughborough and sent back out to the national network during the past few days.
Another 2-3-1 of note; I would have expected to see the water tanks right by yr position..
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan.
Looking splendid with your treatment Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
It stands out bold and proud in B&W, Brian. Love it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly, I think mono suits it better than colour.

I fine engine ... I saw this on many occasions back in the sixties doing proper work.
Brian Walbey: I definitely saw it somewhere in the "real" days because my 1958 ABC Combined Volume, yes I still have it, tells me so. Then I saw it at Bressingham and now of course it is just down the road for some of the year. It has just been overhauled at Loughborough and sent back out to the national network during the past few days.

I head worrying tales that the National Rail Museum could be closed as part of the Government cuts. I hope that it's not true. Perhaps Peter Waterman could take it over? You can see the attraction of a big loco such as this.
Brian Walbey: Yes that has been raised as a possibility or the museum at Bradford or another one that slips my mind. Subsequently a "source" said that wouldn't happen to any of these three places, we shall see. Although Waterman has his own place at Crewe I don't think this would interest him, the museums contents belong to the nation (us), not a private concern.
Excellent image with your processing Brian!
