Royal Train

I used to collect old train postcards and had over 2000 of them. This one from the late 19th Century I kept because it’s a beautifully taken sepia print.

The scene is a posed one and is of the Royal Train that no doubt hauled Queen Victoria around the Great Western Railway of England.

The locomotive has the royal coat of arms attached to the wheel splasher and is appropriately named ‘Queen’. I guess the picture was taken in the late 80s or early 90s.
