From this high vantage point I could see the railway line in the middle ground. I waited about ten minutes for the train to appear. I knew there would be a good trail of steam above the carriages and it was just a question of timing it just right so I could get a clear view of the engine between the trees.
In the foreground is the River Irwell.
