What a cracking portrait of a man and his machine.  I like that Gareth.

I do like revisiting old photos from my archives and re processing them.. I agree with John ... that’s a smashing moment to have caught ... I would like to see the original too  ...it helps to emphasise what can be done with judicial editing  and post processing if desired... 

 That’s sympathetically done  Gareth ... 👍

Nicely caught and processed Gareth. Nik Silver Efex is a great tool.

Thanks Gareth ... interesting that you cropped it a bit too .... it’s exactly the sort of image suited to a mono conversion/ edit .  Well done .

Adding the frame did that, but I thought it helped to remove the line on the platform in the bottom left corner and the cut-off round thing* at the front of the train.

* I'm sure one of the steam enthusiasts will be able to tell me what it's called!

It's called a buffer.

Thanks, Geoff.  
I thought it might be a buffer but I decided that was what was at the end of the track to stop the train!

I enjoy reworking old images, too.

Your processing has improved this one no end - the colour shot is good, but the Nik reworking has given it a brilliant lift.
