Trainspotting

Pausing for a 1920s train, on my way to a friend's art festival. I'd just crossed state borders from Lambertville, west of Princeton, to New Hope, Pennsylvania. This area is a local favorite, just a 20-30 minute drive away.

Además de la maravillosa máquina de tren, es una foto que tiene movimiento con un color muy agradable, es una buena foto. Buen fin de semana.

Now thats what I call a train, a real loco.

Wonderful shot Lulu! What a gorgeous train, so shiny and sleek, creates a nice show while waiting in traffic ... hope you're enjoying the art festival + bon week-end :)

Tanya said...

Always nice to see a steam locomotive. And hear it. And smell it!

cieldequimper - genius, I'd love a coast to coast version of this train!

a.s.m. - thank you! I got lucky with the train:) Have a great weekend too!

LOLfromPasa - thank you! Haha, yes there was a super-mad dash. It happened pretty quick (who knew 1920s trains moved that fast:). Have a great weekend - look forward to some thatched roofs or other treasures you find!

Paul - I do wish they still made them look like this - the ones today seem somehow lacking in beauty (relatively speaking:)

Catherine - thank you! Love that vintage train design too:) Have a nice weekend & hope you're getting lovely fall colors where you are (as you see, ours haven't quite arrived 100%)!

Tanya - thank you! I got lucky:)

Stefan - so true, I love the sound and you could certainly smell it even standing many paces back!

I would have been thrilled to see it specially if I'd been expecting a regular old train. Lovely photo.

Kudos to you for having your camera!My favourite uncle used to live in Lambertville. :)

Jenny - I was expecting a regular train so it was a terrific surprise!

EG - that is so cool, I love Lambertville & have flirted with the idea of moving there (it's just down the road, really:)

Randy said...

That is so cool!

Adele said...

How cool that you were expecting a garden-variety train and got this!

JM said...

Very cool! Great title too! :-)

you must have thought you had also crossed a time space continuum!

There's a steam train like that which regularly goes up into the Gatineau Hills here to a small village; it's a beautiful trip.

Unfortunately they're doing renovations and repairs to the tracks, so it wasn't running this year...
