This collection of images was taken at Barrow Hill Roundhouse two days before the main event titled EAST COAST GIANTS and features A4 locos Dwight D Eisenhower, Dominion of Canada and Bittern along with A2 Blue Peter thrown in for good measure. The day started dull and progressed to wet and dull in the afternoon and evening. it was so wet quite a few photographers had gone by 7.30pm including me. The shoot was to go on until 11pm but you can only take so much of the wet stuff. I'm sure some intrepid photographers stayed till the death which is probably how they are feeling right now!
Difficult conditions ie rain and a poor lighting set up made getting any decent images very hard during the night time session. Having to hold a brolly over the camera and making adjustments is not easy at the best of times. Hope we have better luck on the next charter!
