Memories... the fasination of standing at the end of the platform watching the arriving and departing steam hauled expresses seems as real and relevant today as in the 1950's and 60's. Technology has brought the playstation and i-touch phone but steam can fill all the senses evoking a feeling of power and the desire to be on the footplate harnessing the magic of man and machine in perfect harmony.

An unconventional composition which works perfectly and fits in well with your basic idea. A truly evocative shot and one of the best I've seen here in a while.
