Photographer's Note

Another shot from my walk in the moors the other day, this was taken in Grosmont, I was on my way across the Rail Trail, when this train came past, I was lucky I was in a good spot. For once I'm quite pleased with one of my own shots, it doesnt happen often so I'm hoping this one gets a good response, but please dont let that put you off being honest.

I think a train lends itself to a landscape shot, but because I wanted to capture the steam I used portrait, there is a fence just out of shot on the right too so that would have spoilt the wider shot.

Now what can we learn from this shot? Well I am reliably informed from a friend that this is a "Black Five" mixed traffic engine. This means that it was designed to be able to pull both passengers and freight quite easily, it was designed by the LMS and William Stainer. They were "born" in 1934 and helped tremendously with the war effort. 18 escaped the cutting torch and are "alive" today! Thanks to John for this info!

Comments always appreciated!
