Double headed Stanier "Black Five" locomotives thunder through Hindley station by 

Double headed Stanier “Black Five” locomotives storming up the grade in clouds of steam and smoke hauled the “Buxton Spa Express” steam special.
The “Black 5” locomotive was one of the most successful and popular steam locomotives ever developed and was a real “Jack of all Trades” being equally at home hauling passenger or freight trains.

I bought my first camera in the Isle of Man when I was 8 years old and have loved photography ever since. The sixties were my teenage years and, though I took a wide range of subjects, steam trains were my favourite topic.
I took my first wedding when I was 14 and though the couple loved the album I produced, I have to admit it was not my best work! Although I have worked professionally as a photographer I have never lost the enjoyment I get from taking pictures.

    Love all that smoke!!!

  • It is spectacular isn’t it. These two locomotives were working hard and it was a cold damp morning which always produces a good effect as a lot of the exhaust is steam , which condenses in the cold conditions. It is the same pairing of engines and similar conditions for my picture of “Black Fives storming Copy Pit BanK”. Many thanks for the comment.
