How much fun can a bloke take!
Brian Walbey: Not much more than this Ray although the front guy looks a bit weary of waiting.
Great capture, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
This is timeless, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes there's nothing modern is there, and, without going into a lot of history, this is a very famous locomotive.

Duke of Gloucester, the class that never happened. She was considered not very good in BR ownership but modifications in preservation have given her the edge she was missing. Nice shot!
Brian Walbey: She was first overhauled at Loughborough if I recall but was then moved away, but I believe a lot of modifications from 'as built' have been made.

That looks a manly machine Brian.
Brian Walbey: A very famous locomotive Chad, indeed the only one of its kind ever built, and almost lost to the nation but for a small band of enthusiasts.

What a shot. Came second in the comp? - or is there no meaning in the order they appear on that club site?

This image could be a winner - I like it very much!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, it was the second highest scoring image of the night.

One of my favourites from your competition entries. The driver has a look that he just can't wait to stop laying with his loco and head off home. I like "Coupling" in the other entries but its a shame about the position o the chap's head and the lamp.
Brian Walbey: Yes he looks a bit fed up doesn't he. THe chap doing the coupling could have done with his head just a bit more back so his cap wasn't cut off by the coupling.
This is a fine and timeless picture Brian
Brian Walbey: A very famous locomotive Bill, indeed the only one of its kind ever built, and almost lost to the nation but for a small band of enthusiasts.
