Wonderful - you've managed to keep all distracting modern paraphernalia out of shot! Like the toning as well!

x3!!! Could you explain in simple words what do you mean with paraphernalia??? I have understood the sense of this word...but I would like to know something more. These is a mix of two different words, I suppose...and it could be Old Latin. Am I right?

Hi Giulio, paraphernalia really simply means "stuff". It is often used in a negative fashion to refer to articles, or collections of things which are sometimes useless, unattractive or unnecessary. In this case Andy is talking about modern wastebins, signs, benches, lamps, hanging baskets etc., in other words, things (stuff) which would detract from the nostalgic/historical ambience which the best preserved railway lines try to evoke.
"It derives from a term in Greek and Roman law; the root is the Greek parapherna, from para, distinct from, plus pherna, a dowry, so it referred to the brideís personal property, things other than her dowry. All other goods became the property of her husband, as they did, for example, in England until the first Married Womenís Property Act was passed in 1870."

Hope this helps!

I have to say, your command of the English language is remarkable, as is your commitment to expand that knowledge.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I like the subtle work of light and the effect of the steam or smoke. Toning works so well with the engine.
