Good detailed image like the angle of view and not to many anoraks about one of a nice set of images documenting this interesting event.

I can just imagine the crackle of the fire in the firebox, the smell of the warm oil and the wafts of smoke. Proper Boys' Own engineering and not a microchip on sight. I've just been reading about the owner of this loco; at one time he had the largest sheep farm in Europe and he's currently a Director of my local train operator, South West Trains and the island Line. He's got another LNER loco, too!

A very nice image of 60009, the diagonal composition works very well and there is very good detail and colours throughout the image. The GU are adding some scale to the image and not too intrusive in the image.

Agree with above, another nice photo from your day at Shildon George, lots of detail to be seen.
It struck me as being a little odd that the coat of arms transfer is on a seperate plate then riveted to the side of the train.

Thanks chaps.
Perhaps they had to get the artwork done out of house, then clag it on

It make a nice change to see a loco 'going' instead of heading towards the camera and it works very well here George. A well-spotted opportunity and well taken.
