I love the character of the old steam engines. The only steam engines that I do not like are steam driven (old )PCs. This is a logging train at a museum. Tried to make a photo of it 3 years ago with my daughter in December and we froze to death in the bitter wind and I never managed to make an image that I was happy about. Going home late yesterday, I saw that they had it “operating” which I had never seen before so I circled back and caught the image I always wanted to achieve.

  1. I remember that day trying to get a good image of this train. My fingers got so cold they turned white! I’m so glad you were finally able to capture it and while it was operating no less! The steam and the clouds give it an eerie feel as well which adds to the feeling of the image I think.
