Good to see some photographs again Chris.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The crew of Cant Cove's resident Drewry 204hp diesel-mechanical shunter, D2283, have parked her at the head of the headshunt by Cant Cove itself so that the photographer may take its photo. in the summer sun.

David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Thank you for these super photographs, Chris.

The first one of 34064 is, I think, especially fine.

Best wishes.

Very nice shots of Fighter Command Chris.
I worry though about 73068. That front bogie seems to be in a spot of bother!
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
