Station Scene

Station Scene

The National Railway Museum at York is just fabulous though many of the displays are quite difficult to photograph. One of the exhibition buildings is laid out as a terminal station and in this picture I couldn’t resist the temptation to add a bit of atmosphere in the form of steam and smoke. It would be good if the museum could do this, as well as some sound effects of a station in the days of steam. Then it really would have that atmosphere that I remember so well!

    1. I like this one though perhaps it’s only for steam aficionados. I have very intense memories of the sounds experienced in large railway stations, especially those with an overall roof. That probably indicates where I misspent my youth. It’s a shame that I wasn’t more interested in girls……perhaps ……!!
      Though my wife wouldn’t agree with that!
