A time gone by
Les Auld: But preserved in the heritage movement, thanks for the comment vintage.
I love these little narrow gauge engines
Les Auld: So do I Bill, they are fine examples of engineering.
There's something special about these narrow gauge locos Les, they always seem to have lots of bits and pieces bolted on here and there. This is a fine photograph.
Les Auld: They are great little engines Brian, strictly functional, they always remind of of the dwarves of middle earth, small but sturdy and hard working.
Great image Les..Good view point.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, it ws about the only viewpoint that worked.
Lovely shot Les
Les Auld: Fine little engine Pamela, thanks for the comment.
