Still steaming

It's a image of controlled kinetic energy straining to be let loose. Additionally,the top left electric wires are becoming obscured by the steam from the engine, as if smoke- signaling to the "new" energy that the "old" energy is still viable and can do the job. Love old train images. This one tells many stories. V V nice. thanks, tg

Tony's comments are lovely observations. I love the melting qualities of this work. And of course the B+W.

If one views large, one can see the engineer who seems to be listening to her.

In the days before sensors, gauges and computer read-outs, trainmen could sense the health of the beasts by touch, sound and smell.

Truly connected, and the bond was often life-long.

This is a remarkable photograph.
