Steam Trains - ThreeSixFive Challenge (Sept)

A few weeks ago we went on a steam train journey from Southern Cross Melbourne to Geelong and return, organised by http://www.steamrail.com.au/. What a lovely way to travel, the smell of the burning coal was actually quite nice. What we noticed was the attention to detail in the making of the carriages (from last century); you certainly wouldn't find this craftsmanship in today's public transport system.

Naturally I used the trip as a photography opportunity, and contribution to my 365 challenge.
