Lydia Perrygrove 16 July 2017

A cheery wave from the driver of Alan Keef 2-6-2T Lydia, as it emerges from the trees, and passes underneath the footbridge on the Perrygrove Railway on 16 July 2017. It is working the 13:50 Perrygrove to Oakiron service, on the line's mile route, which includes several sharp curves, and gradients as steep as 1 in 29. Although this picture looks like it was taken with flash, that is purely the effect of the train coming into the relatively bright surroundings, from the really dark wood on the other side of the bridge.
