Red face Flying Scotsman

Well, we waited this evening with many other folk to see the train etc passing through our neck of the woods. I was not happy to see just the engine, tender and one carriage, so in protest the image below shows exactly what happened when it came into view!

Flying Scotsman under steam.

Olympus OM D E M1 mk 2 coupled with Olympus 12-100 pro lens - A.mode - various settings

Re: Flying Scotsman

I went up to an NRM Train Festival to see the Flying Scotsman. It was painted in wartime black and hemmed in by other engines and a throng of people. I took plenty of pictures but none were outstanding. I too share your frustation.

Re: Flying Scotsman

Cracking shot! Nothing like a bit of mist to make a photo.

Re: Flying Scotsman

It certainly lends an air of mystery
