Anyone remember that song from the (?) 1960s/70s?
I was reminded of it last week when travelling on the volunteer-run Strathspey Steam Railway. A wonderful experience that re-kindled so many childhood memories that had been long forgotten.
The Admin Manager of the Railway has asked if they can use this one in promotional material. That will be my donation to the railway.
Getting the steam with detail and not blown, was the big challenge. My answer to getting it right was to go their one day and use the 10-15 seconds that you get with the train in view as a trial run. I got it totally wrong and the steam was completely blown. But I then learned for when I went back a couple of days later and, I think, got it right.
