 Clicker and Ryewolf  ... ADMIN TEAM

Just to let Members know the gremlins in the Dark Mode are back again today and the text is white on white in some areas rendering it  invisible but this issue is being addressed as we speak ... Meanwhile there is a CHANGE MODE button top left under the TIPF logo that can change theme from dark mode to white mode to enable you to still  read it . then back to dark mode if you prefer. Will get back to you all asap. ...

The Little Blue Train

Recommended Posts

Built in 1907 at St Rollox works in Glasgow, it is a 0-4-4T loco owned by the Scottish Railway Preservation Society, it was withdrawn from service in December 1962.

To be honest I didn't have a great deal of success in trying to photograph this train (the first time it's been to the ELR), on Friday I miss-read the timetable so it had already arrived at Rawtenstall, so the images I got were of it leaving tender first, the rest of the day it rained quite heavily so I went home. On Saturday, it rained most of the morning but the forecast was supposed to be nice for the late afternoon, so I went to watch it at Irwell Vale only for a double header of loco's 80080 and 78018 to arrive..... It turned out all the trains were an hour late, when it did arrive at Ramsbottom a lady walked right in from of me just as the train was arriving and none of the train was in focus. On Sunday we had snow and hail, but the afternoon was supposed to be nicer, so I set off to Irwell Vale again with some blue skies and clouds, only to have the clouds roll in and just as the train arrived a blizzard of hail and snow came down......

Thanks Mike and John. 10 minutes after that first shot the sun came out again.

Both nice Rye, but I like the effect the rain has given in the first one too,
