A Trip into the Past.

 This is an old steam locomotive that runs between the towns of Castlemaine and Maldon in Victoria.
                    It is part of a tourist attraction called the Victorian Goldfields Railway.
The trip only took us 50 minutes, but the sounds of steam, whistle and 'clickety clack' took us right back to the 'olden days'.
The locomotive was built in the early 1950s, although the carriages are much older, being around 100 years old. Perhaps they carried troops  to the city as they set off for Gallipoli, what a sobering thought.
         This rusty old water supply pipe caught my eye, great textures when seen close up.
