Duck and Duchess

by davidtrout

British steam power was never better than this. An A4 - Mallard -and a Duchess Class - Duchess of Hamilton - side by side at the National Rail Museum, York. They were the epitomy of speed, power and fine examples of 1930s Art Deco industrial styling.

amazing machines perfectly captured - a bleached version might also work (background brighter and very desaturated and machines saturated with high contrast) - I also like the shining surface of these machines

You have well captured the photo of these beautiful locomotives. It would be great to see a streamlined King from the same era. The Duchess obviously influenced the iconic design of the Deltic prototype.
Friendly Regards

Perfect blend of art and function.

When did Ugly completely take over in the name of High Tech?
