This is a gorgeous image, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Ray, I managed it even with Chris nudging me in the back...smile
You saved the best for last, Frank! This is wonderfully composed, nice symmetry - and I even like the brick wall that can be seen through the windows!
Frank L Croston.: Well thank you, Elizabeth, one of the few I took on our recent adventure into the ( almost) Southern darklands.....smile
You can't get much yesteryear than that, Frank! Fabulous.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ginnie.

Doesn't he just look the part Frank?

Great shot. I guess the '3' is for third class, which still seem to be above cattle class. Then first and second must be extravagant.
Frank L Croston.: Correct, Louis. Oh yes, back then there was a marked difference.
There's not much better than seeing Gresley teak carriages, when I was a youngster most of the trains I rode on used this sort of stock until the Mark 1's came along.
Frank L Croston.: These were very nice specimens, Brian. A bygone age.
You have really brought out the beauty of these coaches Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill, they were quite special.
