Sir Nigel Gresley at Railfest, National Railway Museum, York, North Yorkshire, England

A little bit of an unconventional image this morning. I'm still not sure if I like it as to what I had in my mind at the time hasn't really come out in post processing. It took a lot of processing to get this to how it is but maybe its one of those photos that will grow on you, we all have them don't we?

I do have a colour version and maybe this would be better to use than B&W? I want you to be as honest as possible with your views and comments on this image.

This was taken at the National Railway Museum in York where they were holding a celebration of the railways called Railfest. It had trains and locomotives from all around the UK where you could go in the cabs of them. It was really nice to get up into the cab of the Sir Nigel Gresley and have a chat with the driver, I was lucky enough to get this photo when everyone else had left the footplate. Sadly the weather wasn't on our side and I was ducking out of the rain every 5 mins, oh well you can't win them all can you?
