I like it best in grey, but she sure does look epic in black with polish!

I love those steam locomotives, though I've never seen one for real. :)

This was the first live/operational steam locomotive I have seen & it was awesome. If you ever get a chance to catch one I highly suggest it!! It's a great experience if you like trains!

You said it! :D Not that we have locos quite as imposing as this one over here, but even so. A fine figure of an engine. :)

Gotta love steam locomotives, whenever one passes by, time just, stands completely still.

It's truley impressive. As much as I love the big diesels it's nothing compared to catching a steam locomotive!

A classy lady right there... Nice use of the black/white and sepia tones, it really makes her whitewalls stand out!
