We both love going to see steam trains and the volunteers at Tanfield work enthusiastically to restore the engines and carriages which fill the sheds and yard. Me, I like the small details and try to capture some of the decay and rust before the restoration starts. The first image was an old can which appears to have been burnt at some stage but now has grass growing out of it. The second image is more poignant - the original number of the train is just visible beneath a layer of paint. So much work went into these old engines and it's a shame that some of it is lost for ever.
