Here's one for Roger and Marg down in NZ

Running well on its' former stamping ground- A4 class pacific 4492 "Dominion of New Zealand" (in fact the engine is 60019 "Bittern"), passes Brookmans Park with the "White Rose" excursion from London to York.

08:45, 9th July 2011.

The engine is a sister of No. 4468 "Mallard", the locomotive that established a World Record speed for steam traction of a shade over 126mph.

Great image, I really like the contrast between the steam of the bygone era and the overhead electric lines for the modern loco's
