Many comments have come in regarding this photograph and they all were on the same theme, the photograph is not real.

By real I mean it is not an old photograph. It was taken on the 30th May 2015 and has been altered by Photoshop. Everyone spotted certain details that gave the game away, well done to all. I have only added one comment that best explains it, but thanks to Roger Taylor and Tom Pepper who also sent comments in. The steam engine belongs to Buggyite from the forum who sent me the photograph, he doesn't own the train but he probably wishes he did.

So I hope it has not caused any problems and also no one has copied it.

This photo has just been added. It was emailed to me and the sender would like to know if anyone knows when or where it was taken. The only clue is the word Chinley etched in it. It is a good photo though and any help would be great.
