Royal Train.
« on: February 03, 2010, 03:52:52 PM »
If anyone one is up and about in the north west area tomorrow morning 4th feb, then you might be interested in a photo shoot of the Royal Train being pulled by the steam engine "Tornado" as it travels to Manchester with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall aboard. They are going to the MOSI.(museum of science and industry) I've been told it will be passing through Preston at 08:43 in the morning and travelling via Chat Moss to Manchester.
I've a darts match tonight  :beer: :beer: :beer: and although I am off work tomorrow, it might be a little early for me.


BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.

Decided to go to Leyland Station to get a few shots only to be met by all the usual suspects who informed that it would be back in Preston this afternoon.
Anyway here are are a few shots including a Virgin Train that jimthetrain drives ........ :legit:

They didn't travel on that aluminium thing of Jim's did they?
Please tell me 'no'.

A genuine steam excursion or a modern marvel? No contest.

Pity you couldn't have made it to the sticks for the pictures - would have been much better, but what you've got is not to be sneezed at!

Well done Dave, it's a cracking shot. As a fan of steam locos I wish I'd been there.

Unfortualely the train travelled straight down the main line towards Wigan which ment no clear shot in the country side........ :legit:

That's the trouble with these train operators - no consideration for a  photographer trying to earn a crust!
