I seem to find myself coming across steam trains in various states of disrepair throughout my trip. Not just in museums but also just lying around by stations or museums. Given I’ve now amassed quite a few photos of these I thought I would put up a new part of my blog to show them off, away from the eyes of those who might think this all “a bit sad…..”
I’m not (he said defensively) actually a particular train geek so I have no idea what the identity of most of these trains are, and even when they was a plaque or something saying what they were its not something I have cared to note down. Instead what I’ve done is split them down into where they can be found. (links .will be added as I upload the pages.)
I like the “elephant graveyard” feel of a lot of these places, at the photos I take reflect that. I tend to prefer the ones left to rust and decay.
[…] taken a lot of photos on this trip so far, (you may have noticed the ones on trains for example…) and one of the things I have been keen to do is to take photos of similar things […]
What is a persevered train?
Perseverance, is an important virtue for a train, as is patience with my spelling errors! Thanks for pointing it out…
