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.

Lovely low down take, R1 LCD works well.
Thanks Warren – don’t know what I’d do without that screen!!
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!
Now this place is Heaven, with a roof!!
Wow – I was just commenting on your image (esp?!) – thanks mate for the visit and comment. Even I found this place fascinating! Pleased you like it.
Now that really is a very big boys toy! Great shot
All blokes seem to like train sets Larry – this is just one massive collection all in one place! Thanks for the kind words.
Gorgeous shot Rosalie. I like the angle.
Appreciated Sharon – my camera has a very flexible screen so I can take some very unusual shots!
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 …
Excellence, Rosalie !!! Your perspective, lighting, colours and tonal range are all marvelous !!!
Thanks Phil – I still feel I need a second go at this venue with more informed lighting info!!! I’m pleased it meets your high standard my friend!
Lovely colourful shot and a great angle …
Much appreciated Tom – thank you
