Thank you very much for your kind comment but would you be kind enough to tell me what you particularly like about this image? This will help me a great deal for the future.

I'm a sucker for things old fashioned. I like steam trains and I like old train platforms where there are houses built into the platform.

Everything about the picture screams old and quaint. From the colour and the grain to the guy wearing a waistcoat.

When was this taken?

It was taken about 30 years ago, as a colour slide, at a restored railway system (Severn Valley Railway) and this shot just screamed out for the treatment it got. 30 - 40 years ago, when I had my own darkroom I was never able to get to grips with colour processing. Now, in the age of the digital-darkroom I can satisfy some of my old frustrations.
