B&W works very well for this. Looks like he's been rolling around in the coal for some time. Well done for such volunteers to keep our heritage railways running.
Bill Phillips: They do a great job...this one is a lady

Grim business. I thought you people in the UK know what 'pension' is. Now she has to pick coal to keep bread on the table.

Nonsense aside - this is a great picture.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha....the government would like to take our pensions away if it could

Pleased you like the picture
This is an excellent image. I have no idea what sort of processing was done but it really is wonderful.
Bill Phillips: done in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro Mary

What a great picture!
Bill Phillips: I am delighted you think so Anne
For some reason this reminds me of those living statues you see from time to time. Excellent processing, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I can see what you mean Beverly
Very good processing for this effect Bill, somebody has to do this job otherwise the trains wouldn't move.
Bill Phillips: and most of them are volunteers Brian
Very good theme and composition..very probably over egged in my opinion.
Bill Phillips: Pushing back the boundaries comrade
