The train on Alderney


A different one for me today - A B&W!.. This is the only train in the Channel Islands, and is on Alderney. the train used to pull granite to a crasher and the port, but now the train pulls tourists from Manez Quarry (near the lighthouse) to the beach at Braye - but only twice a day and only on weekends in Summer! This is one place where it is quite safe to walk along the railway lines most of the time :)

I made this black & white mainly because the light was so very harsh last week - not a cloud in the sky! The Sun is behind the train, in case you can't tell!
