Old railway
14/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: N is for Never again!

This nearly stumped me, until this morning, desperation led to inspiration.

The Mawddach Trail was one of the railway lines that succumbed to the Beeching Axe in the 1960s. It has now reinvented itself as a walking and cycling trail, as featured on a few TV programmes, including Michael Portillo's railway journeys following his trusty Bradshaw's guide.

Never again will a train run along this track, but I wondered what it might look like if one tried! :)

Thanks. It took a couple of attempts, but I'm fairly pleased with how it came out. The steam engine is a photo I took about 4 years ago.

Thanks. I'm never sure whether my more whimsical ideas work for other people. But I do like playing in PhotoShop, when I have the time, which is not often.

That's both clever and delightful.

That would certainly add just a touch of excitement to your morning stroll...

It certainly would! I pleased that the image seems to have created the impression I intended. I'm never sure whether my more whimsical ideas work for other people. But I do like playing in PhotoShop, when I have the time, which is not often.
