Once were trains....


... but now all is left of the extensive docks railway network is a pair of buffers and some rails set in the cobbles of the Albert  Dock in Liverpool.

Memories of how things used to be - but how agreeable that these buildings have been saved Les!
Les Auld: It is indeed Chris, thanks for the comment.

The processing suits the subject matter very well. Only by looking closely are you made aware that this is modern life with its surveillance cameras, warning signs and shopfittings.

Les Auld: Thanks Ingrid, appreciate the comment.
A great shot Les, I like the way the buffers have been left, almost like a sculpture.
Les Auld: I suspect that is what they are meant to be Brian, thanks for the comment.

Shame! I always found the industrial and dockside railways to be fascinating.
Les Auld: They are indeed, I think that the Chatham Dockyard has a preserved line in it somewhere. Thanks for the comment.
