Remarks & Notes 
I had last seen a sight like this over thirty five years before (at Healey Mills freight Yard near Wakefield in Yorkshire). Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd ever witness such a glorious spectacle again. Yet here was a steam-worked railway yard, half a planet away, just as if time had gone into reverse - or was it all just a dream?

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
