Nice image showing all 6 engines and more anoraks than you can shake a stick at, looks a bit dark to me around the trains, but a smashing image non the less.

I see what you mean about the crowds now George, the anoraks must have thought all of their birthdays had come at once.
A good view of all the engines smoldering away together, and a vision never to be seen again.
An interesting set of photos even if you are not really a steam enthusiast, well done

Ah... a had a feeling that you may not have been alone for this event Never mind the steam locos, George.. what was the Gourmet Grill like? Were Dominion of Canada and Mallard in steam? I've been pulled by "Bittern" when she visited the West Somerset Railway's Gala a few years ago. Thanks for the overall view; as much as I like steam locos (even standard gauge), I think the thought of the hordes of GUs would have put me off.

Didn't try the grill Alan, not at that time of the morning
No, DoC and Mallard were cold.

A very good image to set the scene and give us some idea of the crouds at the event. It does look very well attended and we can also get a view of all the line up. Well done George.

A terrific shot that I think will become iconic as the years pass by and well worth the effort to remove the rather noticeable colour cast and bring the shot to life. Top marks for your positioning too George.
