Grey and Black Transport

I wish I could show you the seventy-nine ager (an old grey lorry), but that was the subject of a few dreams when I was about 9, so its not going to happen.

So instead, I can show you these varied images, mostly cars, but a couple of trains as well:

Just another view of downtown Havana,,,

Two tone black and grey, which I think was being used for a wedding:

Perhaps supposed to be silver, but looked more grey

Here’s a rather grand and massive steam engine…they let me go on thee footplate at one tiime, briiefly…VERY hot!

And this is one of my favourite train images that I have ever taken, I remember running to get that image just at the right point as it exited the tunnel, with the steam. An old narrow gauge logging train in Maramures, Romania, and very luckily we managed to join a railway enthusiasts outing, or we wouldn’t have been there:

  1. Great choices, Sue. I had a black car once, a new 1979 Renault 5 special edition that took me all over France during the time I owned it. It went really well, but the electrics were terrible. Always blowing bulbs to the extent that I carried spares of each bulb in a box in the car.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. These are great, especially the atmospheric train emerging from the tunnel.

  3. oh you train spotter you, these are fabulous

  4. Just another view of downtown Havana… haha. Yes! Aren’t those cars wonderful? And that is one HUGE locomotive. Tish and I were mulling over the other day, as to what will happen to these steam railways if/when coal is banned?

  5. I adore your cars, but your old train engines are so wonderful 😀 😀

  6. I can picture you on the footplate, but I love that last one, Sue.

  7. Love your train spotting photo Sue 🙂
