Steam trains at Bern station 1957 by 

The Swiss railway system was a joy to travel on. I did one night trip which had to be canceled when an accident occurred on the track ahead. The staff were excellent in getting a dumb Australian who could only speak OZ to change trains, and go by a completely different route to get to his destination not on original time, but close enough that no major connections were missed.

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K3 when possible.

    I like the point of view in this photo. The train is impressive and I think the steam looks fantastic. I am so impressed with your camera work, it’s inspiring stuff for myself.

    Great shot. I love the kid in front looking up at the engine.

  • Thank you. I took it in a hurry and do not remember seeing the kid until I got to look at the shot years later.
