Ok so I cheated.........this "Dunluce Castle" I imaged at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in September 2008, a great piece of engineering indeed.

That's a nice shot,John.Reminds me of the Castle Class engines I used to 'spot' as a kid at Chester in the north west.  It's good we don't have them polluting the countryside now but they were majestic. They belonged to the Great Western railway company and ran into Wales and the West Country-Devon and Cornwall. Here are some images I googled  .
