Those memories didn't come back when we decided to ride the train today, nor when I saw the locomotive steaming at the ready, nor when I heard the whistle blow, or the engine puffing away. No, the memories came when I was seated in the carriage and a whiff of coal smoke drifted in through the window - that's what sparked the memories.
Happy engineers building up a head of steam prior to leaving Glenmark station.
Unhappy engineer telling stupid photographer to get off the tracks.
A428 - a 4-6-2 Pacific class locomotive built in 1909 cresting the Weka Pass.
