The Great Marquess

It’s the time of year when the Fellsman service starts up its summer season, running via the Settle and Carlisle.
Currently, the service is being operated by Gresley K4 61994, The Great Marquess.
I was lucky enough to snap her during her service stop at Carlisle.
I took these photos largely to illustrate the variations of shade and tone on even a clean, well-maintained steam locomotive.
