    Just a few pictures from my morning walk around Dovestones Reservoir in Greenfield Saddleworth & a few lucky ones I managed to take of a steam train passing through Diggle this morning......it looked just sensational and really powered itself up for its climb over the moors to Huddersfield. Hope you like, sorry for there being so many, I took loads and couldnt decide which ones to get rid of! Nice to see the snow in other parts this morning aswell, Ste

    Thanks Rustynailer! Just been doing a bit of research for any steam enthusiasts..the train was a Cotton Mill Express. The 12 carriages are being pulled by 2 classic locomotives - a Black Five and a Standard Class Four. The train left Manchester Victoria traveling to Huddersfield, Sowerby Bridge, Blackburn, Bolton and return....although it was to cold to wait for it coming back again! hehe

    I thought I heard a steam train this morning! Great pics Ste, funnily enough I was thinking of going to Dovestones this morning but it's the same old story with me not getting up early enough.
