Photographer's Note

Today is the 175th anniversary of the first trainpassage in Belgium which happened to be the first railroad on the European mainland linking Brussels to Mechelen.

Maldegem station houses a trainmuseum where you can enjoy a ride by locomotive. The shot was taken during the "Steamfestival". Three volunteers working to keep this steamer going so we can all enjoy the beauty of these machines. The necessary tools are present: check out just above the main wheel...

The weather was very irratic so you might see the raindrops fall if you look closely.

I've posted a B/W version in workshop. Let me know which you prefer...
