Sometimes I can’t stop myself. Here’s a L&SWR Beattie well tank 2-4-0WT emerging from Bolt Tor tunnel (in construction).
I was just trying to get a sense of the scale and perspective of the landscape. You can’t really tell from this image, but I’m very pleased.The Beattie well tank was originally designed in the 1860s and the last engines continued to work on British Railways into the 1960s. 30585 was one of the last engines based at Plymouth Friary engine shed, although mostly used on the Wadebridge branch in north Cornwall.
This example is preserved and continues to run on the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.
This image has also indicated that I need to look at “focus stacking” to attain a decent depth of field.
