Steam in the Looe Valley

Everybody's favourite steam enthusiast Bern the Lens has just sent me a shot that he took only yesterday.

I'll let Bern tell the story...

"...we have had two Sundays running of steam on the Liskeard-Looe Branch, the first time since 10 Sept 1961. The weather was favourable for a change. 

Yesterday in what can only be described as stupendous light, 9466 heads away from Terras Crossing alongside the East Looe River with the 15:35 Looe to Liskeard. For the diesel enthusiasts 37 685 on the rear. 

This shot taken from the grounds of Trewith Holiday Cootages who allowed access to the garden for  £5 Fee which was for the MacMillan Nurses, and they made £225 from the photographers over the two Sundays for this worthwhile charity. 

One hell of a view ... people like me dream of shots like this."

Judge for yourselves:
Just a wee reminder - Bern the Lens will be presenting his highly entertaining and very informative "Two Routes to Tavistock" slide show and talk on this coming Thursday, 30th September. For more details click here.
