image captionEach week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week the theme is heritage and we begin with a photo taken by Simon Ruff of the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire. Mr Ruff said: "The volunteers that run this heritage railway do a superb job. You don't have to be a train spotter to enjoy the atmosphere of these events."
