My father has always been a big fan of the old steam engines, and I can vaguely remember a few from my youth. Fantastic color effects in this photo--I agree the touch of red really catches your eye.

Great shot! We have a photo of Lorne's Dad standing in front of an old steam engine - back in the 40s.

I love, love, LOVE trains; only civilized form of mass transit. And this one is gorgeous.

Love the picture. Is the rail road still functioning. I suppose the steam engine now is only reserved for the tourism purpose.

@grace and Bradley: It is quite a busy line and although run by volunteers and visited by lots of tourists it does serve the local communities too.
