These streamlined steam locomotives are very impressive. You have a perfectly framed shot showing the train in full speed. B&W of course fits with this nostalgic theme.

Fabulous so nice to see the old steam trains isn't it - I wonder when was it shipped over from South Africa - so nice to see these trains restored to their former beauty.
Great photo Colin.
