This locomotive 'Seahorse' is heading for Standedge Tunnel with a Hull to Liverpool express train. Photograph by Bishop Eric Treacy. Treacy was often allowed special access to many areas denied to other railway photographers. He also befriended many of the footplate crews, occasionally persuading them to create special smoke effects for the camera.
