Churnet Valley Railway
5199 leaving Cheddleton Station
GWR Large Prairie Tank 5199 was built in 1934 and restored to steam in 2003. It is on loan to the Churnet Valley Railway and is hauling 5 trains each Sunday from Cheddleton to Froghall and back. Cheddleton Station is only a short walk from our home. There will be lots more photos over the coming months I am sure! (Canon EOS 60D, Tamron 10-24mm @ 19mm, 1/40s @ f/16, ISO 250)
