My tradition end-of-year visit to the Severn Valley Railway for 2018 ended up taking place at the start of 2019, on the penultimate day of the 2018 season.   The locomotive had taken me from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and then to Highley where I decided to have a look around the Engine House, which I had not done in some years.   It is seen departing from the station from the path to the Engine House.

Unfortunately (as seems to be often the case when I do the SVR at this time of year), it was a very overcast day and I struggled with the light, hence a fairly low shutter speed at a fairly ISO setting.   When processing the photograph, I felt that converting the colour image to black and white improved the image as a whole.
