The steam train comes in

Not long after we had our lunch, the first of the steam trains came rolling in. A big black steam engine.  Note how people love to sit in the carriages behind – with their legs hanging out. A popular thing for young people.

The train stayed in the station for about 20 mins, waiting for the other train to come from the opposite direction (it’s a single track line most of the way) and so tourists and other interested parties were welcome to view the steam engine and talk to the drivers.

  1. I love trains, they are so romantic!

  2. What a cool looking train. I need to do some more train photography!

      Thanks for popping by Larry. There is a green engine and a red one too – different shapes. I like the green one best and you’ll find shots of it on this blog if you have a look around.
