RHDR @ Dungeness

One of the many eccentricities of the British is the fascination with steam railways.

Long after the country marched on into the diesel and then the electric age, (mostly) men and boys have kept steam railways alive.

The RHDR isn't simply a toy railway. Although the trains are small, for many years the railway provided transport for people going to work and also as a school service.

Nowadays, it is more for holidaymakers to clamber on and travel from Hythe in the east to Dungeness in the west.

More about their railway and its history can be seen on their website.

I took this picture, at the weekend, from some 75 yards or so as I tested my new toy, a Tamron 70-300mm zoom for my aging Canon 300D.
