Picture of the Week: 7820 from Dartmouth
Picture of the Week: 7820 from Dartmouth

Something a bit different. Went to Dartmouth 3 weeks ago and got this distant shot of 7820 Dinmore Manor coming from Paignton going to Kingswear.

As I stood on the quay side I could see a gap in the boats to get the picture of the train, which you can hardly see! and as it got there just by luck the local water taxi came scuttling across in front, unnoticed, and took me completely by surprise but was timed to absolute perfection by the skipper and helped to make the picture much more interesting. A bit O Winston Link like. (An American Steam photographer)
