Nothing really special, I just like the deceiving nature of this photo, once it passed I jumped on the tracks and got the trailing engine.

Nice A4 shot Kev; was that one of this year's high-speed runs (commemorating 75 yrs since Mallard's record-breaking run)?

Hi there. Thank you :). This one was taken yesterday 30/11/2013 at Newark on a Christmas Charter. It is due to run again next Saturday along the ECML.


Kind regards, Kevin

Those F-units look good for being 60 years old. Surprised they still have that big Alaska snowplow on the front. Have any more pics? Those units always had a nice paint job. Ex-ARR Bicentennial Units & now Eagles.

@ BobG, I'm loving that Big Boy 4014. Normally I don't like signs in the photo, but considering this one shows what's in the Big Boy's future, I like it. :)
