Next Train

Not sure what type this one is maybe 4-6-0. It's called Lord Nelson by the way. As you can see the old coal fuel system has been replaced by some sort of gas gadgetry on the rear truck. That's progress I guess. I liked it better when they were powered by coal and all the soot from the engine used to blow back and either half blind you or cover your clothes in little black smuts. I guess we didn't really but nostalgia will let you believe anything! Copyright D.Maggs 2006

Train Waiting

Here's one for the steam train enthusiasts. Would it be a 2-6-2 ? Copyright D.Maggs 2006

Train in the mist

This is the Snowdonia mountain train in the final station at the top. Mount Snowdon is in Wales UK. We had a lovely view of the mist on the day we were there. It was sunny further down though. Copyright D.Maggs 2006

Royal Fort

You may not think that this little wooden model looks very sophisticated but it was made in the year 1615 as the architect's display for a building which became known as the Royal Fort. It is located in, what are now, the grounds of Bristol University, Bristol UK Copyright D.Maggs 2006

What makes you think we're not enjoying ourselves? Some young people who think that having their photos taken during a carnival in Tenerife is serious business Copyright D.Maggs 2006

Mt.Teide, Tenerife

The view from the side of Mount Teide in Tenerife, Canary Islands. You get they feeling of being in an aeroplane looking down on the clouds. Copyright D.Maggs 2006

Snowdonia Railway

One of the little engines that pull the Snowdonia railway train up the mountain side of that name. These steam trains have been largly replaced by diesel engines now but they still run occasionally. This one was built in 1856 so, as you can see, it has lasted well. Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in England & Wales UK. Copyright D.Maggs 2006

The Glory of Gaudi

Here we have a shot of part of the unfinished Gaudi Cathederal in Barcelona. It has been in the process of being built since the late 1800s. Different people add bits here and there and the whole thing is a gorgeous mish mash that blends into something quite awe inspiring Copyright D.Maggs 2006
