Your steam engine photos are fantastic and much appreciated.
Keep them coming.

This one is such a classic. Rolling countryside, beautiful bridge and the train. Got the lot.
Very nice indeed

You always amaze me in that you always seem to know what the train is, AND where it is going!

How is it that you know this information?

I am also amazed at how often in England they still use Steam Engines! ;-)a

Sadly as I am sure you are aware that no longer happens in the States :cry:


If you haven't watched this video, it's well worth a look, gives you some idea of how these engines are still valued in England

We are fortunate to have a number of preserved steam railways in the UK, Here's a video from a few years back, I have several more on my Youtube Chanel

Stuart these are really nice.
The top one has a beauty of its own with the curving lines and the colours, steam, smoke etc.

Both are excellent.

Many thanks, here's two more from inside the station showing the curvature of the roof.

In steam days there used to be two extra tracks down the middle for non stop express trains to pass straight through but British Rail in their wisdom removed them and it just doesn't look right.

I agree the station looks strange with the center area with no track, just barren ground.

The second picture shows a high speed train, which we do not have in the USA. How sad that the USA does not have high speed train service, and other countries do have that.

Do tracks count? This one has been decommissioned, no more trains will traverse its stretch...
