One old steam locomotive… Weekly Photo Challenge

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/photo-challenge-one/125In 1997, this old steam locomotive still pulled a train on a very scenic route between Knysna and George on the South African Garden Route.  Unfortunately that railway washed away during some mudslides in stormy weather, and the number of working steam locomotives are fast dwindling…  Even the stationary ones are fast disappearing, the greed of politicians to make a few bucks selling them as scrap metal is just too big…  I scanned this photo yesterday, it was taken with my old Canon A1 film camera on a trip in 1997, and not edited in any way.
