Today’s ‘Photography Friday’ involves a trip to the autumn steam gala at the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire.

The above image was captured at the same event seven years ago and shows Southern Railway ‘Schools’ class 4-4-0 locomotive No.925 ‘CHELTENHAM’ at Loughborough Central station, preparing to couple on to its first train of the day…

Coincidentally a classmate of ‘CHELTENHAM’ should be running today… No.926 ‘REPTON’ is visiting from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and I’m looking forward to having a ride behind it.
