[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture taken last weekend of British Railways Standard 2-6-4T No.80105 tank locomotive, this time all steamed-up and ready to head off up the line from Bo'ness to Kinneil pulling the "Santa Special". A grand outing for adults and children alike! Fun and presents for the children and tea and hot mince pies for the grown-ups.

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6.
