34023 'Blackmore Vale' at Longmoor

34023 'Blackmore Vale' at Longmoor
...following on from my previous two uploads; seen here behind 41298 and in company with other preserved steam locos at Longmoor Military Railway Open Day - 28th September 1968.
This loco now resides on the Bluebell Railway in East Sussex.

A scan from a moth-eaten mono negative and resurrected somewhat using Silver Efex Pro 2 from the NIK Collection.

Roobit, Tractacus, Pam J have particularly liked this photo

You are on the ball today, Pam. Hoping you are having an enjoyable day.
The end of steam on the Southern was during July 1967.

Train aside Neil, this is a cracking candid. I like the two "marching" chaps in the foreground..................and is that the Queen Mother behind them??

Many thanks, Keith. Although the Queen Mum was an avid train-spotter and even had a loco named after her (which is now preserved), I think this was one o'them lookalikes as there was no bodyguard with her.

I agree, although my trousers are now looking rather well polished.

I must have looked at this image a few dozen times and never noticed those bulging cheeks!
I have always looked beyond them ;-)

Maybe I am more interested in the people than the loco. : 0
