This picture is of my son taken in the cabin of an old locomotive that was no longer used and was going to be renewed to take tourists on a steam train journey. When the picture was taken another train was passing by and that transfixed my son with fear and curiosity.

An unusual thing about this pic was the cabin was not in a good state and had lots of holes from missing rivets. I had to black out the holes in the computer version as they looked like dust or specks in the picture.

Shot was taken in Medium Format film on a Pentacon six
