These steps lead up to the cabin (is that the correct word?) of a retired train locomotive that sits outside an unused train station. Sadly, in my adult lifetime, this was once an active station with trains running from Quakertown, Pennsylvania, to Philadelphia but they’ve been silent for a lot of years.
The rusty steps, once polished by the footsteps of many an engineer, are the sad testament to our decaying rail system.
I used a texture from Shadowhouse Creations to enhance the feel of “old”.
