Many of you agreed that a B&W format is perfect for presenting the images of a steam engine and for inspiring the feelings of nostalgia, mystery, and adventure.
Even still, the train that visited Radford last weekend also sported pops of color.
On the wheels, and other unknown and therefore unnamed parts underneath the train,
on the doors and the windows,
on the bell and lettering,
… and by the crew members working the train that day.
Despite the impression you might get from this gentleman’s face, the crew seemed to be having a blast, waving and smiling at the crowd as they worked.
What a great day it was!
I’ll leave you with one final shot of our clock, set against the backdrop of historic building art, and we’ll anxiously await the return of the train in 2015.
