    I apologise for not making the image available to all on Flickr but I though that I had followed the procedure for doing just that.
    The image was taken at Quorn station in Leicester which is part of the refurbished Great Central Railway and they have steam locomotives running every weekend. As you can see the stations are totally authentic even down to the costumes and typical of the great age of steam.
    Unfortunately however, the cost of a pint in the station bar is at 2017 prices!
    I can also assure you that the image was taken in Feb 2017.

    Thanks for setting and judging the challenge, John, and congratulations to Alex and Daisy.

    Alex's flask was always going to be a difficult act to follow ...............although I tried as I wandered around the fishmarket.
    There were such indescribable things on sale there that my toes were curled and my lips firmly sealed. Eel liver kebabs for example. Yum yum!!

    Well done to all who entered, and to Alex who deservedly won, in my opinion.

    Sorry I didn't manage to enter, but the subject wasn't necessarily an easy one for me, especially in a short, dark, winter month where I had very limited camera time.

    So, I'm looking forward to seeing what the next challenge is and hopefully I'll get an entry in (I think I said that last month too! )

    well done guys, some really great shots this time.

    As for mine - just a play on a theme as it's all could find on a quick outing to get something up! Good reason you couldn't see it on flickr - have never used it and doubt I ever will, all the info is still embedded in the image.

    Right then Alex - 'next' ;-)

    Apologies for the late response, life and holidays got in the way. Congratulations to those placed and to all those who made tie. To enter. I had Alex's entry as a winner from it first being posted. Thanks John for running and giving feedback on the entries. Sorry I didn't include a title I was struggling to find time and a network connection at the time I entered.
