From photojournalist Patrick Horton....................
I took a trip this weekend on a Palace on Wheels type train. It was pulled
by a 1855 steam loco that holds the record of being the oldest
working steam locomotive in the world. Come to think of it, it is probably
the oldest form of working mechanised transport. This was its first outing
and there were as many media as passengers. There is a beautiful old 'Palace Hotel'
nearby, which is the perfect place to stay, and complete the 'old world' picture!
