Re: The Bluebell Railway

Nice pics Matt, noticed we have some similar shots there and the sun was difficult wasn't it? :wink: :D Yesterday I managed to snap this on the way home from a job, SECR No.65 en-route back to the Bluebell after a short loan to the K&ESR. Not good quality was on my mobile! http://i658.photobucke...
