Full steam ahead
This photo was taken by my 13-year-old son on 16 July at Gargrave top lock on the Leeds & Liverpool. You will notice we only managed to secure the boat with one peg, such was our haste to get the shot. We managed to get it because we had just passed photographers who warned us of the Flying Scotsman’s imminent arrival. I rather cheekily wondered whether it was a shot you could put in your magazine.
My son Rory was the only one to get this shot over the canal boat, the rest were concentrating on photographing it over a viaduct. The photographers suggested I send it to you.
SARAH GIBBS, via email Thanks for sending it in, Sarah, Rory did well and we’re delighted to share his skill with other readers – Ed.
