Haha! I know only the term Boogie Woogie!
Chris: The title of the picture has nothing to do with the content Philine. I was trying to find a way of saying the locomotives are ready to go out there and do some work..

They are dancing Boogie Woogie to the melody of Puff- Puff-Puff!

I'm guessing this is Minehead on the West Somerset.Apparently Foxcote Manor pulled a royal train in 1963.
Chris: Yes Minehead. Surprisingly BR built ten Manors after nationalisation

This is an impressive photograph Tiff, two engines rather than one make this look a veritable monster. Also, the elements of red add spice to this.
Chris: I love red spice Chad, sometimes it can blow your extremities off..

I've seen this fine loco for myself coming out of Crowcombe Heathfield during the WSR Spring Gala this year. I understand some of the bits for these locos came from another class of locomotive; early recycling?
Chris: Yes indeed, bits & pieces from 43XX moguls were utilised to make then
The fascination of these old engines will never die.
Chris: I doubt if it ever will either Tom
A fine shot, I spent a few hours at Minehead station during a holiday there some tears ago, what a great railway the WSR. is.
Chris: One of the very best Brian
