A holiday in August, and a meeting with a friend resulted in a day out at Loughborough and the Great Central Railway, the date was Wednesday 27 August.  The photos below are what was about and on show.  The camera may be better but the photographer is still poor at picture composition!

The day out starts at Loughborough Station 
and just gets better!

Same engine - different view!

On the day Great Western tank engine No 4141 was doing 
the honours and providing the motive power

And of course there were the ubiquitous diesels, in these pictures D123 and D4067
