Sir Nigel Gresley A4 Pacific ‘Union of South Africa’ August 23rd 09

This is the Sir Nigel Gresley A4 Pacific 'Union of South Africa' hauling a steam excursion around the Forth Estuary. Taken from North Queensferry Station on a rainy Sunday afternoon it is always a dramatic sight as it finishes crossing the Forth Bridge, runs past the station and enters a tunnel. I am lucky to live very close by and usually get to see these Steam Excursions.
