Taken at the Railway Museum at Thirlmere in the Southern Highlands of NSW Australia … one of about 50 engines housed there in various stages of restoration.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    My granson will love it….he is a Thomas the Tank Engine fanatic. Grand !!!

  • Hey Bot – they are actually creating a T the T Engine – they have had approval for 2 years now but have been taking a long time getting it done … so, it will be a great place to visit!! Thanks for the comment my friend.

    Do they sell these & do you think I could get one into my backyard? beautiful :)

  • They have so many there you think they wouldn’t miss one Max – just a bit tricky fitting it in the back pocket and getting it home!

    Like it????

    I’m going to move in!!
    I’m taking train shots today- old steamers, running on a preservation line.

  • You know I’m tempted to move in myself – the government is now spending $14million on this setup!!! I’m sure they’d fit a couple of apartments in there somewhere for us!

    glorious captures of all of them, wonderful ‘toys’ I love steam engines, there is that certain smell and ambience about them, I think it is called nostalgia. haha. hugs xxx

  • Isn’t the smell of the smoke (and the bits that get in your eyes!) wonderful?? And the sound … nothing like it. Thanks Hilary – I’m sure many of us are overtaken with nostalgia at the thought …
