Bygone trains

I recently visited the Isle of Wight Steam railway and in part of their newest museum they have these old carriages that our awaiting renovation, and I find them beautiful and fascinating as they are, I took many more photos of these than of the lovingly restored carriages in the previous section of the museum! Luckily for my partner my camera battery was showing low otherwise I think I could have spent a week in there photographing these 🙂

Some of these were used as little holiday homes, as a wendy/ summer house at the bottom of the garden or just as a storage shed. I love that on one of them you can still see the coat hooks and curtains.

  1. Thanks for letting us see the carriages through your eyes. I see the beauty in them too.

    BTW – There’s a small spelling error at the end of the first paragraph. (Please forgive a pedantic old guy and edit this comment out.)
