Cathedral Express 2 by Benzdude Cathedral Express 2 by Benzdude
First of 2 shots taken with my compact camera, the steam train Cathedral Express. Was surprised how fast it came through.

Nice Spamcan Shot! :D

And, despite the speed limit of 60-odd on old steamers, that doesn't seem to stop em' from pushing it on occasions!

Kind of shocked me and my dad at the speed of it coming through the station, just managed to snap a couple of pics before it hurtled through. Not as quick as an electric but far more impressive.

They can be surprising, one of the Kings caught me off guard and I couldn't draw my camera in time!

And the odd, alien wirbles of modern electrics certainly can't beat the sound and fury of steam! :D

At the time this shot was being taken we had an electric coming in to the station on the line next to us, so it was a bit of a panic between the speed of the steam train and the electric one blocking our view. However, top marks to the driver of the electric one because he slowed it enough for everyone to get a shot in. It was definitely an experience not to be missed! :D

lol! Nice! It's always good when the drivers remind everyone they're human too, and probably enthusiasts!
