Default Old Oak Common

Visited their open day today. Plenty of locos and beautiful weather. One of the highlights for me, 7 Class 50's.

I do have pics but whether I can download them is another story. I'll give it a go.

Great photos, very crisp and clear and a pleasure to view. Bet the day was a real treat for you as well I guess.
