Flying Scotsman Steam Train


The Flying Scotsman Steam train, photographed on the East Lancashire Railway. The winter steam gala certainly lived up to it’s name with a weekend of winter snow. The snow certainly did not put off the 100’s of visitors and truly added to the atmosphere of this historic visit of this most famous train.

Washday Blues


1940’s Weekend on the East Lancashire Railway. This year has been a bit rainy but found this Lancashire Lass ready for washday. Washday in most of Lancashire was always on Monday but this lass had her dolly blue ready for the wash.

The ELR is always a good spot for photography not only can you photograph train and steam photography but they also hold special events suitable for all the family. This photograph was taken at Ramsbottom Railway Station.

I am a big fan of the East Lancashire Railway and all it’s volunteers, can see the joy spreading out from young to old – Can you help?

I was really pleased to be able to photograph the  “Santa Special” getting into the photography hobby certainly makes you aware so much of the passing of the seasons.

Merry Christmas
