My Sunday Photo: 25 June 2017

Steam at WirksworthToday’s photo is once again from the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. The loco you see here has just hauled a train from Duffield to Wirksworth; not only does she need to be replenished with coal, but also with water, which is happening here. Standing still, the boiler pressure climbs quickly, even with the firebox draught cut back, so here, a spectacular blow-off of steam was imminent!

It's kind to share!

  1. I love steamtrains, we have a steam railway close to our house and in the summer you can hear the trains chuffing and their whistles. #mysundayphoto
