These men are having too much fun!

I like have you have yerself in a position where the smokecloud is accentuated by its backdrop of foaliage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure all the guys on these trains had a great time.
i had to look twice that they were two different locomotives, Brian. excellent shot and i like the light in this weather. and a charming light rail too.
Brian Walbey: They had about 12 of these little locos in use on the day, it was really enjoyable.

This is interesting, I didn't know they built their own locos
Brian Walbey: This extract from Wiki explains a bit Chris It is privately owned by Mr Graham Lee, former chairman of LH Group Services Ltd – which in 2005 bought what remained of the Hunslet Engine Company. They have very large and well equiped workshops to deal with new builds and restorations.
They need to decide which way they are going grin
Brian Walbey: It comes in handy to have them like this, they swap them about from train to train and I don't ever recall seeing one run tender first.

I'm always amazed when I see the age of some of these locos. YI always thing of steam locos as being much older, Great work by the builders.
Brian Walbey: yes some of them are very old and others newbuilds from Statfolds own workshops.
Brilliant viewpoint to see the action
Brian Walbey: I thought it one of the best spots for photos when the tains travelled in this direction.

They look very well looked after.
Brian Walbey: Very much so Anne.
Their own "model railway" - they must think they've died and gone to heaven!
Brian Walbey: They have over 30 working locomotives of this gauge plus others awaiting restoration, plenty to keep them busy.
A nice shot of them working together Brian. Bit different from the monsters we see here.
Brian Walbey: Indeed very different Frank, but I bet you'd enjoy a day out at this railway given the opportunity.
