Photographer's Note

Taken at the Threlkeld Mining Museum and Narrow Gauge Railway in Cumbria, the locomotive seen in its shed is "Sir Tom", a 1928 Bagnall 0-4-0 saddletank narrow-gauge steam locomotive.

This beautiful locomotive has been lovingly restored to its former glory and when the museum and railway are busy in the summer months, she is fired up and pulls a small train full of visitors along the railway around the site.

We were fortunate enough to be able to spend some very interesting time with Ian Hartland, the engineer who has done so much work on this locomotive and for the museum. And we were even more fortunate when he was talking with us that he sat down on the front of the engine and was immediately joined by his faithful companion, Shep!

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

As always, all comments/critiques/advice are warmly welcomed.

P.S. This picture was taken last weekend in Cumbria during a wonderful meeting of six TE members there and I should like to thank all the others for making that weekend such a lovely experience - lots of learning about photography, great camaraderie and fantastic fun!
