Remarks & Notes 
Look out for the Devil

Intrigued by the arrival of fifty photographers in their tiny hamlet, the locals turn out to see what's up, to be greeted by the famous Red Devil blasting by at track speed. The black smoke is uncharacteristic of this efficient, modern locomotive and had to be induced to satisfy the photographers who like the smoke.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
