Don't know what's going on here. I can see my photo without any issue.

Actually, one of those comments below the video about the noise, reminds me of some of the later scenes in "The Blues Brothers" :lol:

An unusual coloured loco... or a wildcard.
Not so much unusual, more what colour shall we have. Three locomotives of the same class with different liveries. Seen at Santa Apolonia Railway Station, Lisbon.

Next -- Whatever you like, but no train or engine.

I had better explain what this is.

Liverpool to Manchester Line

This is at the top of the Whiston Incline by Stoney Lane bridge. The cutting here was widened to accommodate sidings where assisting locomotives could be detached from ascending trains and added to those descending the incline.

Originally, it was thought that steam locomotives would not be able to climb the incline without the assistance of rope haulage and work began on the construction of a line-side winding engine. The success of the Rocket at the Rainhill Trials eliminated the need for this winding engine and another that was planned at Sutton, so they were never completed.

This is the base just over Stoney Lane bridge.

Something else historic.
The privately owned St. Kitts Scenic Railway commenced running tourist trains on 28 January 2003. The scheme is run in an unusual partnership between the government and a private enterprise. The slogan “Last Railway in the West Indies” demonstrates its objective to preserve a link to a past, when sugar ruled the island's economy
