A very foggy, dark and damp day on the Great Central Railway. I have tried to capture just how grimy it was in
these photographs.Some of the photos are quite moody and atmospheric so not all was lost! And of course the usual friendly banter between fellow photographers made the day most enjoyable as is the norm on these charters!
Many thanks to the GCR and crews for providing some great entertainment and of course Russ Hillier for organizing the whole thing!
