The Duchess Of York by CJSutcliffe The Duchess Of York by CJSutcliffe
LMS Princess Coronation Class 8P 4.6.2 number 46233 "Duchess Of Sutherland" gets underway with the Scarborough Flyer from Crewe to Scarborough on 24th August 2012, with driver Albert Seymour at the regulator whistles blowing all the way out of the city.

As :iconjsh50: couldn't be there, I thought I'd try and re-create one of his York station angles:



Did I do well? I hope so! :D

Strangely enough it was the architecture of the station which caught my eye; I find the curve intriguing and the height of the ceiling impressive. I believe encompassing the grand scope of the station around the engine within works very well :thumbsup:

Thank you very much for the comments. :) It is a classic tried and tested angle, but each photographer will have their own opinion on how to shoot it.

The classic York angle. Good work.

Note, the coal pusher being used at this point.

Great shot! York looks so much brighter than I remember it. Have you photoshopped it? And if so, how please?
Thanks, David

Thanks David :)

I have shopped it, but not considerably. All that's been done is auto levels, contrast and colour, followed by highlights to a 390 pixel radius at a small percentage. Which actually made it darker than it originally was. The exposure was 1/80 at F5.6 though, so that's how dark it really was in there at that moment.

Great shot Chris! Thanks also for including my images. Sorry I couldn't make it today! What's the steam at the back of the tender ?

Thanks for the comments, and as I said before, not one problem at all. Get well soon sir. :)

The steam plume from the tender is the steam driven coal pusher being utilised, as raking the coal is impossible due to the overhead wiring in York. And the Duchess's needed considerable loads of coal to keep them fuelled up for the long journeys they made in their careers, so a heavy duty machine meant less manual labour, and was thus cheaper to operate.
