Yes
started by kingsown over yonder who hasn't posted for ages. He seemed okay with posting to that thread and it was popular with many pages of wonderful examples

on the road - bedded down for the night.
these are pulling an old 'humpy'. Government road authority (PWD) camps pulled from work site to work site.
Coldest things out when the fires long gone out and its -5 (C) outside, and the frost has come in to share the night.

Named after the short-statured British comedian, Wee Georgie Wood is a 1924 Fowler built, 610mm (2ft) gauge, narrow gauge steam locomotive that operated on the North Mt Farrell Tramway, linking Tullah to the outside world via Farrell Siding on the Emu Bay Railway line on the West Coast of Tasmania.wee georgie wood bw.jpeg
 
Nice shots, Richard. I was waiting for you to rejuvenate this thread. If we ain’t careful we’ll think we’re back on POTN. :)

Thanks Ray. You couldn't have a photo forum and no steam. It'd go nowhere :giggle:

Yes it's a bit like that already re the feel of this forum

Great picture Cap'n Fishy. So that's the Aberdonian! When I was based at Catterick in prehistoric times - I would wait on Darlington station in the freezing cold with snow falling 'deep and crisp and even' - with no moon shing brightly, though - for the steam train to London and my fellow conscripted buddy, Bill, would be waiting for the The Aberdonian to go in the opposite direction to Inverness. The trains were absolutely packed and normally no seats were available and we were sleeping in the corridors.
