My Sunday Photo: 19 July 2015

MSP150719Once again, this shot is from a visit to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, Wirkworth, Derbyshire. The unusual perspective here was only possible to obtain because a) the loco was coupled to the coach by its front (smoke-box) end, and b) the coach in use had a glazed door at the end. you’ll notice there is very little smoke; this is because this shot was taken while travelling down a steep incline, so very little power is required. Just an hour earlier, I had the experience of riding on the footplate of this same loco!

  1. Fab photo. The unusual perspective makes it feel like the train is coming right out at the viewer.

  2. what a brilliant perspective! I love steam trains although it’s been quite a while since I’ve been on one. We used to go quite regularly to a local steam railway museum but it used to be free and now they’ve started charging a small fortune just for entry 😦

  3. These steam train photos really make me want to go and travel on one

    Thank you for linking up

  4. So cool getting this perspective.
