The steam locomotive is classic that needs some TLC.

Margaret Adamson said...

Well you won't be going anywhere by train then!! Lovely shots.

Great backdrop for your fences!!!L...:)JP

Penelope Postcards said...

The saying “run out of steam” comes to mind seeing this lovely heritage train.

I hope no one was expecting to take a ride on the train. Great fence scenes. Have a happy day!

It is a quite strange for us a day without trains. Trains are often late, but they keep passing every day...

Christine said...

Fenced off and forlorn! But great photos all the same especially the old steam engine and the rusty tracks!

Birdman said...

Now, this is a place I'd have some fun visiting.

Jo said...

Rustic and whimsical captures. That old steam engine brings back childhood memories.

I really like the fence in front of the tracks.

Sylvia K said...

That's a fantastic looking engine!

William Kendall said...

That locomotive certainly looks enduring!

Lowell said...

It doesn't look like any trains have been going anywhere for some time. That's a shame. Nice series, EG!

orvokki said...

Nice serie !

Cloudia said...

Love seeing the train! That fence across the tracks says something we've all felt!

Cranberry Morning said...

No trains... but I like the tracks. And that wonderful old engine!

Ida said...

What a bummer that no trains were running. Does the fence move off the tracks? I liked your photo with the fence and the tracks as we as the cool engine shot.

Lorna said...

As always, a little twist!

RedPat said...

Love the engine, EG! It needs a bit of work and then will be beautiful again!

Jeanne said...

That old steam engine is a real blast from the past. Love these shots!

TexWisGirl said...

now that's a new take on a rail fence. :)

cieldequimper said...

Disappointment!!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oh my gosh...I wouldn't expect to ride the rails in THAT. But such a great 'take' on fencing. Lovin' it.

barbara l. hale said...

Yep, they meant what they said apparently. No trains today. Good fence pics!

Taken For Granted said...

Love old railroad trains. This one doesn't look like it has run in a long time. We have a narrow gauge steam train running in the Black Hills of South Dakota called the 1880 train, but the engine is more like 1920. Lovely photos.

Pamela Gordon said...

Is this like a tour train? I love seeing old trains and engines.

Gill - That British Woman said...

was that at Tottenham? Never been on that train.

Lois said...

Awesome looking steam engine there! Too bad there are no trains though. I have several that pass by not far from my house every day. I love hearing them blow their horn, especially at night.

Felicia said...

those old steam trains were the best.

Carola Bartz said...

Pictures of railroad tracks are always intriguing and even more so with a fence across them!

Rose said...

Trains are another subject that interests me...and calls to me. I would love to have hoboed a train. LOL

Jack said...

Yeah. It is going to be hard for the train to get through that fence.
