Old Steam Train


.SKY Watch, an old steam train passed through Grovetown on a cold frosty morning, on way to a enthusiasts meeting. There is quite a lot of snow on the mountains behind, and masses of smoke and steam, issuing from funnel on the engine, fills the sky.
Somehow hearing and seeing an old steam train just makes your heart beat a little faster and lifts your spirits; pity there are so few of them any more.

You can't beat a steam train!

Looks a lovely day there, glad I'm on the warmer side of the world though (At least for the time being!)

Oh I love watching trains. I still remember taking the train back and forth to school (university) and the thrill of sitting in a quiet coach, listening to the train along the track looking out the window. So many wonderful years, so many great memories!

This is a great photo. Thanks for evoking the memories for me :)

I enjoy looking through this blog.
