The sombre light adds to the sad state of the machine. I like it.

Cheers Graham. JS was more like a steam graveyard than a museum. There were lots of derelict locos there. I doubt if many of them will ever steam again due to time, money and labour.

I like the balance of the live green plants against the rusty, still train. It adds to the sense that this has been idle for some time.

A long wait, I suspect. Interesting picture though, so something is achieved !

Many thanks everyone. I just found the balance between rusting machine and nature so fascinating.
