Steam Engine

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 26 September 2016 in Transportation.

I got home from the hospital about 10 days ago. I am in a wheelchair and have started to walk a little with a walker. I have on a long leg immobilizer. The knee implant remains out. It will probably be re-implanted in December or January when the doctors are sure that the infection is gone. I am still on intravenous antibiotics. I do see some small improvement everyday which is good. I have missed all of you. Thank you for your good wishes. It means a lot to me. I am going to try and post some old pictures that I have reprocessed to black and white. I hope to get on AM3 at least a couple of times a week to start out. This first image was taken in 2011. I changed it to black and white.

Superb! the huge steam and smoke plume is fantastic - I can feel the power of the locomotive chugging along.
