Very good image with lots of atmosphere, well timed with the smoke collecting under the bridge, like it a lot. well see and taken

No sign of the crowds here George so well done for that, certainly in the right place at the right time.
Two anoraks on the bridge looking on, certainly no need to be cloned out as they add to the interest, of the event.

I just Googled for the Great Goodbye.. sounds like a wonderful event to get all 6 of the remaining A4s together; where they all in steam? I can well imagine the hordes of "anoraks" everywhere so you've done well to get most of them out of shot. The two on the bridge are fine and make me think of of couple of kids on their way home in the 1950s stopping to watch the loco emerge from under the bridge. Only the mesh fencing spoils that thought, though I love the steam in this and the hints of blue in the sky.

The composition is great especially with the two boys on the bridge and the atmosphere created both sides of the bridge by the smoke and steam, but as said above it is a pity there is so much mesh fencing, but again not a lot could be done about that.

Smoke, steam and hot oil, can't go wrong with these components for me George and this smashing shot is no exception. A lovely composition, full of action and drama and the two GU's add to the picture imho. Well done that man, like it loads.
