Passion about trains

By xwang
The photo was taken on the day when Flying Scotsman went through Retford station. There were a lot of people waiting at the station. While the Virgin train I was on was pulling out of Retford station, I saw this scene through the window. I gave a quick dial on my camera and captured the lovely moment....Grin
Pity this is a heavily cropped image,I couldn't give it to them, but I put it on Retford Times. I always wish that I had a big zoom lens at this kind of moment..Grin
Thanks for viewing.

No, it passed my train on the way in between of Newark and Grantham, but I sat at the wrong side of the window.. very fast. People were waiting along the railway line all the way down to Grantham.. till the train went through. I have never seen anything like this... it's the very British Passion about steam trains..Smile

Wonderful picture, Xwang. I can relate to this because my father worked for the railroad when there were steam engines, this reminds me of those times.

I do!Grin But not as mad as you... I went to York Railway museum a few times, I was really moved when I saw the old trains at the first time. I thought they changed the world.. imagine what the life would be like without industrial revolution. Smile
A lovely image with great attention to detail, great capture, beautiful photography, Jasmine.

A lovely "slice of life" image, Jasmine. I think he will have to lift up the little boy to see the photos though! Wonderful capture. I've heard of the Flying Scotsman. I remember trains when I was young - we have a railway not far and I love the sound of the train coming through twice a day (just freight though).
