Adventure. Mystery. Romance. History.
These words are often attributed to trains in general, and steam engines in particular.
A passenger excursion train, pulled by a steam engine, rolled into Radford last weekend (see here). The crowds came out to ride, see, and photograph the magnificent train. We were lucky enough to get very close to the train, so I was on the tracks and practically under the train, seeking the best image.
This view of water, used to create the steam, dripping down and splashing on the stairs caught my eye.
B&W images remind us of days gone by, or days we’ve only heard of, or read about.
The next post will feature more images, but in color.
