Evokes a time when people watch trains for entertainment. Remarkably done.

The Star and Garter Inn looks very good as part of Clarence Dock. I reckon those dock workers earned themselves a lunchtime or after-work pint (or both).

Though not my regular place for a drink after work, it was a really nice place. :)

I must run some steam trains again. It has been a little while since the last running session.

Another train heading south. This time a troop train with soldiers of the Northumberland Fusiliers. A mix of different Company carriages make up the train.

The younger granddaughter decided to run steam trains, which is unusual for her.

A northbound oil train passes a passenger train in Leeds Sovereign Street Station.

Every picture tells a story, like the troop train and the platform full of troops.

One part of the layout is 1914/19 whilst the other is 60 years later. A bit odd when they collide, (but so what :lol: )

You cannot beat "big" steam engines :) Great pictures as usual.
I've reached the age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me.
