Waiting for the Rain
Waiting for the rain to stop has become this summer’s mantra. Here, we wait inside the engine shed at the Great Western Railway steam centre at Didcot, Oxfordshire, England.
The dark toning is hopefully in keeping with the vintage atmosphere and general gloom. All around us the splutter and sizzle of steam; the heat from the engine boilers; the wonderful aroma of hot engine oil mixed with coal smoke, and the oil and water underfoot, are all part of the experience that bring back my memories of ‘the good old days’.
