Wow - they really made quite the improvements, didn't they? It's beautiful in both stages, I think!

I'm so glad they preserved this wonderful engine.
I have fond memories of the old steam locomotives in Cornwall.

Does he normally live at the York Railway Museum? I was there a couple of summers ago and remember seeing this engine I think.

I agree with Picture Imperfect...beautiful! A lot shinnier than the shield I got from you, ha! It's been properly cleaned now though.

I don't know, you wait for ages for a steam train to turn up, then two appear almost at the same time.

They really did a beautiful job. What do you suppose they could do for a '96 Nissan Altima?

I especially like the quality of the lighting(the warm cast and the reflections)that you captured in this photo.

Lovely photo of a wonderful engine. I was active member in a similar society when I was young. I'm still a member, but haven't been active for years. There is an awful lot of work behind Sir Nigel Gresley's splendid condition which was a joy to see.
