No Trains at Ramsbottom

Ramsbottom is one of the many pretty villages that you pass as the steam train trails up the Rossendale Valley. Over the winter months the East Lancashire Railway restricts the steam trains to only running over the weekends, so today being midweek it was quite safe to photograph the rail tracks as there were no trains!

This photograph was taken using a long exposure on a tripod to prevent any blurring, complete with wooly hat and gloves to stay warm.
