Walking, I mean rushing through Victoria station on the way to the Royal Albert Hall, I had time enough to stop and take a photo of the steam train that had found itself on platform two.
The thing I like best about this photo (although a little out of focus because I was walking at the same time) is the contrast between the electric train behind, and the steam train in front. While one is faster and more efficient, the other is incredibly more elegant and beautiful. You could even feel the heat of the engine when walking past.
I think, in the new year, I’m going to try and go on a steam engine train.
