What appears to be a very ordinary scene was in fact the last day of steam worked passenger services on this remote branch line in China. The day was suitably dark, dank and drab. In the foreground is the local coal mine still in production.

Deceptively simple, as they say. This divides into two frames, the loco steaming its last breath, the humans ambling along away from it. Photo journalism of the highest order.

Excellent photo, Robin! I would have missed this one if it was not awarded (HC well deserved-well done Pete Smile)late this evening.
One of my favs no doubt!
