More from the East Lancs Railway, this time they are all from the works and yard at Buckley Wells in Bury. It’s not normally accessible unless you work there, but is sometimes open for group visits or for photographic night shoots which is where all these were taken.

The following were all taken prior to a night shoot and are all ‘real’, ie. they are not re-enactors, they were taken at the end of the day and the engines were being put to bed for the night, so to speak. As a consequence, light levels were low so they were taken at a high ISO, slow shutter speed and a steady hand!
