'Flying Scotsman' at Llangollen

'Flying Scotsman' at Llangollen
60103 about to leave Llangollen station for Corwen and looking as she did during her final year with BR and as I remember her from my school days.

Taken the week prior to Easter 1995. A scan from an Agfa slide

Perhaps my favourite because its an unusual angle and shows her beautifully.

Perhaps I have six shots, out of 600, taken at this angle.

On first sight I thought this image was taken next to a continental railroad.
Surely you guess the reason why. ;))

It does appear as if it is driving on the wrong side of the road ;-)

Yeah. We say Geisterfahrer, that equals wrong-way driver in English. ;)

The line beyond Llangollen was single track, so which ever platform the train left from it would end up on the same track, a bit further down the line, beyond the goods yard.

Very nice Neil. I did a driver experience in February 1995 on 60103 at Llangollen. Quite an experience too!

Many thanks, Pete.
I checked out the cost of a days driver experience about a year back and decided a 'Round the World' air ticket with hotels included would be better value for the same price.

Many thanks, George. It has taken me all my life to discover I should have used this angle more than half a dozen times.
