Happy days ...this made me smile, Christopher
Chris: I am glad it made you feel that way O Wonderful Being!
Nunney Castle looking wonderful. Memories of childhood seeing a castle roll into the station with the Cornish Riviera express
Chris: Oh don't - don't!

You will observe the lack of revved-up HDR in this portrait

There I was, thinking 'What are they on about, that's not Nunney Castle', and then I realised it was the name of the flipping steam engine - duh! Lovely photo, Chris, and I particularly like the unrevved-up nature of the colours. smile
Chris: Thank you Lady K. You will observe that unlike W J Phillips (no relation) I studiously resist chucking the entire contents of the twiddling-box at the image

Love this! Has a nostalgic feel to it.
Chris: Thank you kindly Jennie
A fine old engine!
Chris: Restored to as new condition
I've photographed this old girl at the GCR in times gone by, fine looking engine. Where is this taken. We spent yesterday at the GCR for the second day of their main gala in beautiful sunshine, unlike today of course.
Chris: This is Bath Spa station Brian, the loco was working from Bristol to Weymouth and back

I've been to Nunney Castle; a fine place. Apart from the photographers - and the lamp standard - and platform signal thing - and the two seagulls - it could be a timeless image.
Chris: Of course I could have cloned them all out but...

Seagulls were invented before the engine
That looks like great fun, Chris..
Chris: Thank you Pauline: these things are to me what planes are to you I suspect
It's good to see so many about these days isn't it.
Chris: For me it is sheer delight Janet
I like the steam you've captured, Chris!!
Chris: Thank you Elizabeth
