Great shot Martin, love the engine with the backdrop and a super slab of slate.

What a lovely little machine. Passed this place so many times...must call in one day. The guy who bought the mine and set this business was killed in a helicopter accident not too long ago...

Anything to do with railways makes me look twice. I've been a steam and railway enthusiast ever since I was a child. Nice one this is!
