Great Central Railway (N) Rushcliffe Nottinghamshire 20th December 2018
British Railways Standard 2 2-6-0 78018 passing through Rushcliffe Halt on the northern section of the GCR with the 12.30 Santa Special. 78018 has just come off the single track section from Ruddington and is passing the disused Hotchley Hill signal box. These days we use smokeless fuel so no more dramatic skies and less pollution!

HFF & have a great weekend.

Haha, I was just thinking how black that smoke looked and then you describe the reason. Another fine loco capture from you. Well done.

It certainly made for a great picture, but reducing pollution needs to become our number one priority.

HFF!

Another wonderful image Peter, I think if you made that much smoke now there would be a campaign to ban steam trains !!!!!!!! when the reconnection is complete it will need a lot of work to get that section as smart as our section

BTW I think this marvelous image would be perfect for any train calendar! I used to work for a calendar company and their train calendar would do well to have an image of this calibre! :)
