Sepia Saturday 77: Steam Train

Despite being a bit of a closet train buff, I only have 1 sepia vintage postcard of a train, so quite an easy choice for me for this week's Sepia Saturday. It's a postcard of the Scotch Express approaching Crewe. For those of you from outside the UK, Crewe was once a major rail intersection with impressive rail works which built and maintained vast numbers of the country's locomotives.

I did also find this postcard which, although not sepia, fits the theme well enough for inclusion.

As usual, 100's of vintage postcards on my web site

  2. I think the photo of the lady looking out of the window would have been sepia if it had not been colorized.

  3. And I wonder where that train was going :-)
    It's a long time I don't leave a comment, but I follow you in silence anyway, cos I like this blog so much :-)
    A big kiss to the UK, I love that country so much and I'm so sorry I didn't move there in time :-*

  4. The LNWR produced a lot of postcards of their trains, but the strange lady looking out of the train window is great. She almost looks like a tailor's dummy in a shop window.

  5. Both great cards, full of adventure and romance.

  8. Yes, that lady certainly looks uncomfortable; perhaps worried a little too much about her hat?

  9. Very nice. On our recent trip to London, my wife and I lamented the loss to modernity of those old coaches with the windowed doors and their separate compartments.
