Good shot. Where is the smoke and steam? The engineer is at the controls. Another factor to my high shot rate is that I am out of work, and have been since I found Panaramino. I get a feeling of worth from illustrating the world I am a part of for those who might never come by here.

Well JB, he's just coasting into Grosmont station, preparing to stop so he will not be pulling smoke. There is a little bit of steam under the piston near the leading wheel if your'e feeling cheated!!

Let me just take the controls for a spell. That is a grand peace of machinery!

If you like machinery JB the check out this locomotive

It's the sister of A4 Pacific Class Mallard, which still holds the world steam speed record of over 126 mph. This particular loco is a post-war record holder itself of 112 mph.
