Hi, MaryAlice, again and again I´m surprised how easily you find such old abandoned things. Seems you live in a place where big industrial companies were active in former times, but now all is left behind, people did leave because of unemployment after the production was given up... I don´t know if that´s right, but it would explain what I see (and what I like to see most) in your collection... Another great picture with some sadness in it, a wonderful contrast to the powerful locomotives you posted earlier...

I hope all is well for you. Have a nice Sunday

Kindest regards from Germany,

Greetings, Peter, and how are you this evening? How wonderful to hear from you again. =)

Once again, you've spied yet another abandoned subject in my gallery.

You know, I think these sort of things are probably in everyone's area, but it's just a matter of looking for them. It's so easy to ride by them if you don't have your eyes peeled.

I think, for some reason, my mind is just programed to see the weak and abandoned. I do this with old homes, old building, old factories, old trains, etc. You get the idea. It's especially bad with old homes. I love to imagine what they looked like in their day, and what they could look like again if I could buy them and restore them. New homes offer nothing to me what so ever.

I didn't mean to ramble, but I thank you so much for enjoying these things that interest me. Your visits are always greatly appreciated, Peter.

I hope this evenings finds you very well.

Warm regards,

Mary Alice

Greetings, Павел-Pavel, and thank you for dropping by my gallery. I'm glad that you enjoyed this old retired Locomotive. I thought it still had quite a lot of character! :)

...that's live Mary Alice, but a friend of locomotives certainly has tears in his eyes. Good image.

Warm regards,

What beautiful words you speak, Heydie. It made me sad seeing this wonderful old loco in such shape too, but I'm sure it had many wonderful years back in it's days of youth. Thank you for your visit and sensitivity. Warmest regards to you this weekend, Mary Alice
