The engine No. 76079 is the BR Standard Class 4MT that is a regular on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.  Caught it just leaving Whitby for one of it's regular runs.

Nicely captured, not seen this steam train, slight pity about the Stop Sign ....

That’s a really steamy pic John ... 😉 I actually rather like the stop sign ... yeah I think it actually adds to the pic ... and I suspect you like it too as it is removable  if you wanted to eliminate it ..

Thanks Rye, thanks Clicks, thanks Paul.   I thought that the stop sign was part of the furniture so to speak and didn't really consider removing it.  Clicks, I was lucky with the steam.   I had positioned myself just inside a crossing gate where technically I shouldn't have been but there were three tracks between me and the one shown so I risked it.  The train was stopped waiting for a signal and when the driver looked straight at me I thought I was in trouble so I waved in acknowledgement.  He took it as a signal and gave me a nice burst of steam.  I always wanted to be a train driver.  They are such nice people.

There's oft times on the ELR at various footpath crossings that I've been a lot closer, I always wave to let them know I've seen them.

Well it was worth the risk John ..it 's a really atmospheric portrait of the age of steam ... very nicely processed too I might add ....
