I love trains!!! <3
Mighty machines with powerful engines that are able to pull and draw what not even a horde of trucks/buses can! Over 100 wagons making the ground to rumble! Classics never die! I Hope & Expect trains can be with us for other more century! :D

I wish there were such a kind of trains, along with trains for passengers, in my homeland: The state of Oaxaca, in Mexico. There were trains in Oaxaca City long ago (early 90's), but not anymore. R.R.'s require much less upkeeping that highways. And subways and trains are the Nice & Neat solution against pollution. xD

Excellent photo. It's almost expressive the way the Shine & Shades interact between each other. The position of the train on the photo somehow shows off the train itself and its power to draw those heavy wagons on the rails. xD

Nadezda - thanks so much!

Joshua Beta - I also love them! I love riding in them, and even just watching the go by. Trains were the lifeblood of the country. Thanks for great comment.
