I love the flowers in the median!
Brian Walbey: yes it was clearly in the spring when I took this with the daffodils and Tulips.

It has always struck me as disrespectful to use stem locos backwards, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Not much choice if there isn't a turntable at each end though, but most uncomfortable for the crew I've always thought.
nicely framed Brian. i like this shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Nicely framed through the sign Brian... i would think that they would run better frontwards....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. Not much choice if there isn't a turntable at each end though, but most uncomfortable for the crew I've always thought.

Very atmospheric isn't it Brian. Not many LNWR engines exist because the LMS concentrated on Midland Railway designs & scrapped virtually all other examples
Brian Walbey: A very popular engine at the moment, not long out of overhaul.

Nicely framed, indeed, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie.

A great shot and loved the way you framed it.
Locomotives are so photogenic.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. This engine is particularly popular at the moment as it has only recently been overhauled.
Clever bit of framing here Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

I'm not sure about the clarity of that G Brian., it could easily be mistaken for a C.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it could Chad, would you like the phone number of the Station master to tell him smile
great POV
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Loughborough......

I almost went to university there...

I like this picture of the train...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Previ. Loughborough has a very good University.
Nicely framed, Brian,that's a tidy little engine.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. It is very popular at the moment having not all that long ago returned from refurbishment.

Some one keeps that nicely polished
Brian Walbey: It hasn't long ago returned to use after refurbishment, no doubt the paint will fade a bit over the coming years.
Very clever framing with the sign board and flower bed, Brian. It almost looks as if the fellow is kicking the wheels of the engine like he would do if he were buying a car.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. I think I caught the fellow as he was about to step up in to the cab, but I know what you mean about buying a car, a good old kick of all the tyres seems ot be part of the process smile
Effective framing Brian……..a very nice shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.

A wonderfully framed composition - and it is your home town? This loc should be named 'Brian', but, unfortunately all the locs are female beautuies, I don't know why!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, almost home, our little town of Shepshed is about 3-4 kilometres from this station. By tradition all railway engines and ships come to think of it, are usually referred to in a feminine way.

You can't resist, Brian!
Brian Walbey: NO I can't Lisl, and what a complete difference to the Lake District, the next few weeks will see quite a variety of subjects.
Superb and very nicely framed Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
I am not quite old for these
Brian Walbey: I must admit I am, but I'm sure many men who are too young to remember steam traction will still enjoy seeing them in action.

Nicely framed, Brian. You sure that this is not large advertising hoarding? wink
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I guess it might well be the original GCR name board from time gone by.
