Water Tower

By Lillian  
All the water towers seen over in France were painted so beautifully
This is the station at le Crotoy where we went to on a steam train from
St-Valery-sur-Somme where we stayed for a trip around the Somme, our first day there
and we returned on a Diesel engine
see versions 2 and 3

Yes, another set of landscape and trains!!! whatever next!
Thanks for stopping by most appreciated as always

Super set of images Lillian, what a great idea decorating water towers and making them into a feature rather than an eyesore. I love the engine too Smile nothing quite like a steam engine Smile

The water tower looks much more attractive painted in this way than many a concrete monstrosity I have seen back home.
And you have captured that old steam loco in fine detail.

from the images shown.

particularly like the engine images, and interestingly painted tower, i supose it beats having a monstrosity there. All three well captured and i would choose V2.

That's one of the most attractive water towers I have ever seen - and you cannot beat a proper steam engine!

A trio of amazing images Lillian - love the water tower - makes a change from the usual eyesores!
However, the steam trains are fab - something different too. Smile

I remember these water towers well when we went on holiday in the Mallee in Australia years ago. Sometimes we could get out and stretch our legs and for a child it was really an adventure.

That steam train is an interesting piece of engineering, it looks fairly new unlike our old ones. The water tower is also unusual that they paint them and why not too. Couldn't see them been painted over here nice shots Lillian
