    The 1908 steam railcar was running again on the South Devon Railway, see https://www.photographerslounge.org/f22/contrast-styles-steam-diesel-railcars-16640/ over the weekend, much more wintery conditions this weekend with snow showers. This gentleman dressing in the fashions of the Edwardian era arrived for his journey just as a snow shower began.

    There are one or two snow flakes visible on the gentlemans shoulders

    Then it began to snow in earnest

    Indeed, and quite a snow shower it was. Nicely captured Barrie.

    Essential clobber for going into court to earn a living & afford cameras & live on the edge of the outback.

    Jock, I think it might be a two pipe problem.

    With the snow falling, I wonder how long it might take an untrained eye to spot that the image is new? Nice work.
