good subject, good centring, that's interesting because I didn't know that some locomotive were painted in green.

Hi Phil,

You made an impressive picture! I like those old technical subjects. It must be disapointing to get only 1 point and no usefull feedback.

I made for you a workshop just to show you my idea. Maybe it is a help. (Ofcourse I had to trick a lot)

Let me know what you think of it. Look here


Hi Phil
Some say that The City of Truro was the 1st Steam Locomotive to achieve the 100 mph mark. Your picture here has been cropped just a little too severely. I would have liked to see all the driving wheels in full. If you have to crop then the piston end is the end to see. Your image is sharp. TFS.
