Excellent work once again Jim.

Pete, 10000/1 and 10201-3 got green iirc between 1955-59 when the southern locos went north in '55 to concentrate the 5 locos on one region.

Just decided to do a few images, including a view of the canal which I've never gotten round to and a few experiments.

You should submit a few of those to the “real atmosphere” file at MRJ especially the last one. :thumb

Cheers,

Jim

It looks like a damp miserable night at Brettell Road. As noted above some real atmosphere captured there.
