This is a smoker. By the overhead wires in the capture I would have thought your trains were electric. I don't know much about trains. Maybe freighters are smokers for the needed torque. Don't imagine electrics have much ability to generate torque. This is a beautiful capture; clear and sharp. Like the affect of the headlight; gets your attention. Smoke gives a sense of motion. Good work.

Thanks Bob

The only steam trains that run here now are preserved ones. (like Oliver here).
They only run on special charters where people pay a lot of money to ride behind one. This one was also dragging a diesel for the return journey as it wasn't coming all the way back to London.

So it is an event when one comes through.

You can even get smut in your eye if you know where to stand Wink
