What little colour there is, lol.

Looking at them side by side, I feel the b&w is the stronger of the two.

Hi Fran,
I realise I'm treading on dangerous ground, but this colour version is outstanding. The problem is that these locomotives are icons of the Art Deco period and the sort of image you achieved with the B&W version has been done to death over the last 72 years! This picture is not only a superb piece of work, it's also refreshingly new and different to what has gone before. As Steve says, to get these three locomotives together like this is a rare opportunity and you've clearly made the most of it. Also, I have to disagree with Tony re: the yellow vests, because you've photographed an important present day event and the yellow vest is part of the scene. The figures also help to accentuate the size of these locomotives.

Well done!

Not my kind of subject matter but just wanted to say that I think the colour version is a head and shoulders over the black & white.
