I seem to find myself coming across steam trains in various states of disrepair throughout my trip. Sometimes in museums, sometimes just outside train stations. 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 to this post as I upload the pages or can be found in the page menu on the left.)
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.
