It looks a little like Stephenson's Rocket - possibly a replica or something along those lines (no pun intended!!).
Great shot that works well in Portrait.

A well-composed image. The rails make a fine lead-in to this most unusual engine. Hope you find out something of its history.

Wonderful image, great composition, love it Smile

Probably not that useable on the open line with that high smoke stack so possibly used for shunting? The rails are very nice indeed, I think I might have gone for some sepia here Barbara.

Memories of yesteryear, Barbara: lovely use of the tracks as lead in.
Oh Yes! I do like this the vignette adds the real touch of an old photograph, worth the effort I feel Barbara. Wink

Excellent low pov along those tracks, Barbara, and a lovely balance to the image with the train on the right. The sepia and vignette works well but I feel the green background of v1 just gives a bit more definition to the engine.

I love the nostalgia which this image offers and I like both versions too...hard to say which I prefer!
It isn't the "Rocket", it looks more like a version of the "Puffing Billy" but I'm not sure. I just wish I could have seen it and enjoyed snapping away at it too!
You used a long lens so is it not possible to get very close to the engine?

Those tracks look a bit wonky! Smile Well captured. I think I prefer v1.

Lovely shot... I'm enclined to go for V2 because somehow it look more pleasing to my eye!
I also like how you start the shot with those curvy rails.

This is stunning Barbara - but I think I still prefer the original; the colour palette is so limited anyway that for me it works really well. There's always something about the green/grey combination I like. Smile

Definitely version 2 for me with the toning has just that right aura. Great shot.
