    The guard in conversation with the driver as a passenger gives an admiring glance to 70013 at Loughborough. a set up shot on photo charter. '3.2.1 freeze!' holding a pose for 30 seconds is more difficult than it looks. The loco is 92214 in disguise.

    Ah but, yeah but, Steve you were the one photting the loco coming in backwards - I was concentrating on the fireman & the Bobby - coincidental that the loco was in reverse! :)

    Again, just an every day scene. What I liked was the timeless feel - 1962 or 2012?
    ( OK perhaps not 1962 - everything is clean(ish)!)

    Cheers, Neil

    upload_2018-6-12_12-47-20.jpeg In this photo taken during the 1st May Bank Holiday week. We see a group of LNERCA members setting too "Hammer & Tongs" giving the LNERCA's CCT E1308 some well deserved not to mention sorely needed TLC.

    Preparing a King for the road. Didcot 2013. How the guy putting the reporting number on kept that pose for nearly a minute I've got no idea.
