i have happy memories from my brief time in Derby, Bill. looking at the drive wheels, this is one of the more muscular locos that i have seen - meant for hauling cargo?
Bill Phillips: Yes built for heavy freight on a line with steep gradients
Snap.
Bill Phillips: You can't go wrong with train snaps
Magnifique ! J'aime le traitement, on dirait une photo ancienne.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Martine
A grand loco Bill, you did it proud.
Bill Phillips: A mighty old girl

Built for the Somerset & Dorset line, where she ran all her life, and shedded here in Bath. You have produced a fine image
Bill Phillips: Quite specifically apparently
Perfectly tweaked for its well-deserved fame, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ginnie

Timeless, and I love this. You did a great job in presenting this amazing picture. What a wonderful locomotive.
Bill Phillips: She is a fine old loco built for hard work

If the fireman (although I know relieve that it could be forelady) she's going to be there for weeks trying to fill the tender with water from a garden hose. The loco has fine lines.
Bill Phillips: Yes it is she....perhaps it only needed topping up as this was the locomotive that pulled our train

...interestingly (or otherwise), the diameter of the driving wheels is almost the same as the gauge.
Bill Phillips: An inch can be a big difference

The coal lass seems to be watering the coal. The coal were plants very long ago; I don't think they will revive.

Excellent picture of this engine. You white vignette also works very well here.
Bill Phillips: She is clearly deluded optimist...a bit like Boris
A fine shot Bill, great presentation style, and that surely is Minehead shed.
Bill Phillips: It surely is Brian
Nicely done, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Graeme
it is a grand old locomotive Bill... i like the man in the coal bin... that is a great treatment highlighting the train and fading everything around it....petersmile
