The common factor among the four main engines at this steam event was that they were all in BR black livery, and very fine they looked. The rare visitor was the Riddles WD 2-8-0 from the Worth Valley, whilst Ian Riley's second Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 No 44871 was making its first gala appearance. The dank misty weather did no-one any favours, but it was a sound start to another steamy year in 2010.

I like the Jinty 0--06T passing the signal box at Ramsbottom. The PW staff actually add some feel to this one, even though they are dressed in high vis!
You can almost smell the steam and oil..
