A scene from steam excursions that hasn't much changed over the years! Thanks for posting.

There's something magical about this photograph - it's as if I've gone into the future and looked back at myself. Great composition and I love the choice of the warm B&W, even if it was made at time of purchase!

Nobody's shooting digital here! Love the kids, really add to the scene.

What a brave angle to take! The temptation to join the gallery must have been enormous - apart from the 15 guinea special, this was the last day of steam. But 40 years on, this shot says more than those from the gallery would have done.

Great scene. Nicely dressed gricers. And I like the contrast between the "big kids" and the little kids.

I love the picture - how poignant! Must have been a fascinating yet sad day, as is the end of any era. Those kids must be in their early 40s now... I wonder if any of them grew up to be rail fans and/or photographers? I wonder if they have ever been on this site looking at the awesome database of pictures?
