Crewing on a steam engine was a dirty business. This was taken on the side of Wab 794 during a service stop.
This engine was built in New Zealand in 1927 and is now the only one of its type in working condition.

I like it Mike!!
Thanks, Husky. The title is a bit tongue-in-cheek but I think it has a nostalgic feel and shows the grime nicely.

Well done Mike. Thank you for sharing this with the Male Photographers Group.
Well this is a surprise! Didn’t expect to get a feature with this. Many thanks. I appreciate it.
Like you said, it has a great nostalgic feel to it.
I can smell your image. Very nice…
Are you sure it isn’t just the smell from a hard day at work? Thanks for making this a favourite.
My thanks to the voters.
This… is what photography is all about.Very well done. :)
So THAT’S what it’s all about. I’ve been looking for the answer for years! Thanks Rog, I really appreciate your comment.
Congratulations on being featured in “Freedom to shine” – my dad used to have an oil can like this – happy days!!!
Thanks Mattie. People do seem to come over all nostalgic when they see this one.
Excellent work in terms of theme and technique. I love the mood. Congratulations for well-deserved feature!:)
Thank you Danuta. It was one of those lucky finds when subject and light came together at the right time and place (couldn’t have moved this one anywhere else). And thanks for the favourite – I take it as a real compliment coming from a photographer of your high standard.
