Brilliantly captured!

In the wake of the rush towards modernisation of the system these locos never achieved their full potential. Luckily many are preserved
Bill Phillips: Bullied wasn't happy about not being put in charge after nationalisation and went off to run the railways in Ireland. I didn't know that although he came from New Zealand his family roots are in Devon, and that after retirement he lived for a while in Exmouth

Indeed! Bulleid was a fine designer. Is this from our Bridgnorth trip? Its a far better shot of it that I managed.
Bill Phillips: He was and it is Alan
What a magnificent engine, it stands nicely against my Oliver Cromwell shot from yesterday.
Bill Phillips: Indeed Brin they are not unalike in appearance

Whoosh!!!
Bill Phillips: It could hoosh a bit in its day Ray
Steam power at its best! And what TB says is spot on - it's not power to the people, but power to the powerful these days!
Bill Phillips: As the Americans will increasingly find out in the Trump administration which will do nothing for the blue collar workers who voted him in
I love the shade of green I see on so many British trains...
Bill Phillips: It does look rather smart
