Excellent.

Mr Rolfe might sling a rope to that ole pile of metal and tow it behind his mountain bike for you, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, Alan ( Wiggins) Rolfe may well do that...smile
I think I have a photo of you taking this photo! Terrific shot, Frank - your angle makes it look as if it might be moving!
Frank L Croston.: Not a minutes peace! smile Thanks Elizabeth, pleased you like it, thanks for putting up with my interests in railways...smile

You are honoured to be able to meet this venerable old thing - oh and this locomotive!
Frank L Croston.: We are lucky to be granted an audience with the great man, when he will show us his giant train set.

What a wonderful machine Frank. Have a great time with Mr Rolfe, will he be arriving in a train like this?
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it, Chad, he will be travelling on the photographers special, we ( the poor people) will be on the normal excursion, but I'm sure we will all enjoy ourselves...smile
Looks like you are both in for a good steam train ride, we will have to make do with the electric train to Parme.
Frank L Croston.: I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much, Bud, have a safe trip.
this is so great in sepia
Frank L Croston.: Glad you like it, Chantal.

What a great B&W image
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Robbyne.
Definitely the best so far of a great series Frank, I always wonder why foreign locos, unlike ours, always had lots of pipes and bits stuck on all over the place. I do hope, for all three of you, that you are able to meet up with Alan in September.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian,perhaps we were more concerned with style, personally I like them like this, very photogenic! We have plans afoot...smile
Fine detail...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry.
What a wonderful beast ( the loco not Alan) And what a setting for it
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it, Bill, this place was like going back in time, wonderful.
It's like something out of Alias Smith & Jones, which to my delight is being run on Sky. Great shot, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Pauline, if it makes you happy....smile
Nice antique effect with the B&W
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom.

Wonderful - me, not the loco (to get my own back at the comments of (former) friends here smile ) This imagine has a lovely timeless appeal to it. Actually, so do I wink
Frank L Croston.: Of course you are, Alan...smile Thanks very much, see you there!
