Taken earlier today at the Halifax Show. An ancient steam engine was lovingly cared for by a somewhat eccentric steam engineer.

I worry about what the engineer does in "real life"....(with a beard like that) (and where's his clay pipe?)

What a wonderful picture. I bet the engineer guy is quite a character.

Nice shot, I think excentricity is part of the job description.
