scottish borders railway

A Thing of True Beauty....

A wonderful day was spent photographing The Flying Scotsman yesterday - here are two of my favourites and a few in between! My children waving as it passes south of Stow and over the mighty Forth Rail Bridge. Both shots completely worth the wait, it was magical and I must confess, I shed a tear or two. It was a magnificent sight and I am proud that I have been able to share it with my children!

Back to where it began!

I feel like I've gone full circle! Photographing steam trains is where I started in when the Scottish Borders Railway opened I had to get a shot of one of their celebratory steam hauled trains.  Here is the beautiful 60163 Tornado blasting passed the dramatic backdrop of Borthwick Castle.  Timeless, classic and beautiful!

Big thanks goes to the lovely farmer, who very kindly let me into his field to take this shot.
