viceroy special in sri lanka























Just a few photos from the very old train "Viceroy Special" journey through the southern part of Sri Lanka with Tim Fisher and Scott McGregor recently.

Did you spot the mobile phone amongst the historic surroundings?






















The steam engine was not used every day and had to be used with the diesel at the rear for safety(in case the vacuum failed).

All too often I wish things didn't change so quickly. That's a gorgeous train and I wish I could hop on board.
