Another winner - really nice composition and a good feel for the territory.

I'll second what Mitch said.

I tried to think of a way to improve this shot - I couldn't

Great human interest shot.

Superb shot of a train in its rural community setting.

Awesome catch Michael.

This is a unique shot, to be sure. Also, it proves that steam trains can be a universal attraction.

It is hard to add more then has already been said, but, my thoughts are not only is this a great train picture, its a great picture for any venue. And I agree, its really hard to pick any feature that could be better done.

I second John S. This is just a great picture, whether for the train, the landscape, the human element, the story, etc. I truly enjoy just looking at this photo.

"I tried to think of a way to improve this shot - I couldn't" Well, if those darn railfans hadn't waltz into the photo, it would've been perfe -- Just kidding, great shot Michael!

Railway, Travel, Landscape and Human Interest rolled into one photo. Superb.

Wow. That's one great shot. Very interesting steam locomotive too.

I normally don't care for rail shots out of the US but this one really grabs me. The magic of the rails seems to me alive and well in South Africa! Get shot.

I'll third on what Mitch said.

This line was revived after 33years? Fantastic! It certainly looks as though there is a good mix of freight and passenger coaches on this train. Obviously the need for rail service exists. I can think of several US rail routes that I'd like to see reopen! Thank you for sharing Michael!

I'm curious if the family is admiring the train or if they are looking on at the machines that evidently recently started a huge grass fire that threatened to burn several structures in the background down. Great shot by the way!
Posted by Michael F. Allen on June 23, 2007 
Jake, If you look carefully you will see that the fire actually ended at the tracks. Burning off the old grass to make way for the new spring growth is a widespread practice in Southern Africa. Of course, locomotive started fires are a danger and the tour train was always shadowed by an off road capable fire truck and crew.
