Gently down the stream

Dungeness transport

I captured this image late in the afternoon on the edge of Dungeness while actually waiting to blip the train.  In fact, I caught three of them, all in focus - and not at all my usual kind of shot!  To me the beach view beyond the rider looks almost like a backdrop in a studio, which I found interesting but pretty weird.

In Extras are the steam train (they also have diesel engines) and an old Ford that lived next door to where we were staying.  The railway runs on 15" gauge tracks and has carried everything from lengths of pipe to HM Queen.  Currently it has a contract to get children home from school and otherwise carries tourists.
