EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the majestic Woodcock, a powerful A4 Class steam locomotive No 60029, in all its glory. Taken by renowned photographer Eric Treacy around 1954, this print showcases the iconic locomotive billowing thick clouds of smoke as it emerges from Copenhagen Tunnel near London Kings Cross station. The sheer power and elegance of the Woodcock is evident in every detail of this image. Its sleek design and impressive size dominate the frame, while the billowing smoke adds an air of drama to the scene. The intensity of steam emanating from its chimney symbolizes both its strength and determination as it pulls a Newcastle-bound express passenger train. Treacy's skillful composition allows us to witness this momentous event firsthand. The contrast between light and shadow creates a sense of depth, drawing our eyes towards the heart of the action. The blurred background hints at speed and motion, emphasizing that this is no ordinary train journey. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history captured through Treacy's lens, we are transported back to an era when steam locomotives ruled the railways. This photograph serves as a testament to their grandeur and reminds us why they hold such a special place in our hearts today.
