Photo of the Day

I haven't done a 'Pic of the Day' for a bit, so here is my attempt to address that.

We all know it's a modified Hornby 8F on my rather wonky 30 year old Combwich, but let's just pretend it's the following.....

It's early September 1963, and our intrepid photographer Ivan Locksmith is firing off some Kodachome II  on his Leica M2 recording Bath Green Park's 8F No. 48660 shunting in the yard. These engines hardly ever worked over to Combwich, this turn normally being reserved for an ex-Midland 4F, an ex-GWR Collett 22xx or an Ivatt 2-6-2 2MT, so a very worthy subject for Ivan's camera especially seeing it looked like it was a nice day.
