A rather unusual visitor to our local railway museum.
Sorry but I havent been able to find out anything about it.
Weekend yet again . Boy time is flying too quickly.
Have a good weekend everyone.
An image of a time gone by, crammed packed with charm and nostalgia.
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
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.
Love this shot lovely angle
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.
Greatly composed with the lines. Love V2 excellent.
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.
Excellent shot, Barbara. V2 wins my vote.
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! Well captured. I think I prefer v1.
Nice one Barbara!
Very nostalgic images, Barbs, and rather a charming little engine, well captured. Carol
What a super engine...love that chimney! Brilliantly captured Barbs, and like both versions equally
Really well captured Barbara. ....
What a lovely old machine. Well captured Barbara. Moira
V2 the sepia version for me Barbara for this cracking shot.
I equally like both and those railway lines! look like writhing snakes lol. unbelievably crooked, good atmospheric shot, regards Leon.
Great perspective and wonderful lines (no pun intended). Superb image Barbara
I think in this instance the sepia version works very well great composition Barbs
What an amazing old Engine Barbara, and a VERY nicely taken picture of it. Smashing view point.
And thanks for letting me know about my Picture, that was a nice end to the Week
Wonderful capture of this weird and unusual train with a great POV in the composition.
A great capture
Great shot Barbara both versions work well
Super capture ... like both versions equally, but makes you wonder what they were on when they laid those rails ... Carol
Not a lot of room for passengers.
A lovely engine Barbara and works well in sepia.
Natural lead in lines!
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.
V2 for me Barbara very nostalgic.
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.
Got to be the sepia for me Barbara
NICE comp / Nice work
Regards - SANJEEV -
Super capture Barbara, of this wonderful engine.
Good composition. I like the use of the tracks as a lead in.
Both versions work for me.
Great POV with the rails in the FG. The vignetting works well too.
I'm a sucker for colour but on this occasion I like V2 Barbara,
Looks like a Heath Robinson to me. Well taken and composed.
Excellent composition and lead in Barbara. A replica of a 19th century steam engine
Barbara, do you have a time machine...? Good shot! V2 for me, of course
A charming little engine.
Well composed with the tracks.
Definitely version 2 for me with the toning has just that right aura. Great shot.
