Breathtaking Shelagh, especially the old train on that viaduct over the Ribble Valley.

Me and old locomotives... we're best of friends Wink

I wish we never left the Steam Age. Then again, I'm obviously looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses. Maybe the pollution wasn't as bad as CO2 pollution. Steam is after all just water vapour... which could not have contributed to global warming.

... though combustion gases from the engine would have been harmful.

Ahad,

But I think it messed up people's laundry that was hanging outside to dry.

Carol is right but we lost a lot with the passing of the steam engine. The romance disappeared from railroading or a trip on a train and a diesel horn can't come close to replacing the poignant wail of a steam locomotive whistle in the night.

Dick, I agree a lot of modern things, like electric railways, lack a sense of "class" about them.

And made the brickwork on houses charcoal black too.
When train fares had been lower, I used to relish taking short rides into London. Just as the train was approaching St Pancras station, I'd see some of the houses with blackened brickwork dating back to the Victorian era.

I also love the vast range of wildflowers you can see growing on long stretches of railroads:
