All aboard!

A journey back in time to the days of steam power. There are many groups of volunteer enthusiasts in the UK that work tirelessly to maintain private railway lines and the engines and rolling stock that run on them. This was shot on a visit to the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway in North Yorkshire. I took a lot of pictures on the morning spent there but this is the one that I think takes me right back there. You can almost smell the oil, smoke and steam. I can hear the sounds of the steam blowing and the guards whistle. Sights and sounds that I remember as a boy when steam was still operating alongside the newer engines that would completely replace them.

Steam's Up!
