I think the Diesel is a BR Class 37, the ELR has two of these loco's.

It is the same train at the same place, I just couldn't decide which of the two I preferred the most...

My confusion, they do have two of the Class 37's, which is why I don't know which one it is.. It really was a mucky day, and was raining when I took those Diesel Loco shots. So it was literally two shots and then the lens cover went back on, I had planned to wait for the next steam train, but the weather got worse, so I gave up...

My vote is for the second  of the two ..ie the last pic ....for no other reason than I feel it is slightly better balanced...

I was sorta leaning towards the 2nd shot myself, but as I only managed the two I thought I'd post them both...

That's fair comment ..I wrongly assumed after a glance that they were the same image ... that'll teach me to look properly next time ....:lol:

Shot number 2 is the one for me - the belch of steam just makes the shot.

And I love the name 'Witherslack Hall' - sounds as if it could be straight out of the Gormenghast novels.

Apparently there were 71 of these modified Hall Class loco's built only 7 survive... seems a bit sad that so many steam trains ended up as being just scrap metal......

Great set Rye.  

My choice in the diesel images would be the second. I like the rear of the train further away from the edge of frame.   It really is working well in b/w too.
