Great shots by the way, were the tracks still intact or did they pull them out of there?

Jon told me he had cows that were getting into the vator and was concerned for ther safety.
He was obviously upset with the decision to torch her but as he said "nothing last forever".
I asked him what he was going to do with the old drive pulley wheel from He engine house, and he said its going for scrap.
I told him I thought it would make a nice yard feature, and he agreed, so theres a little piece of history saved!

I am sure the land owner was very upset with the people who would come into his town. It was probably difficult for him to keep people out. He probably shoudl have placed a no tresspassing sign or fence. Sad that is all gone now, it was a classic place!

I have high resolution film and digital image of her (probably the only ones) so she will not be lost.

I, like Shaun, unfortunately have, and will continue to keep certain places on 'close hold'. It is a true shame that history cannot be shared without modern perils of liability, safety, privacy, souvenir picking, theft, destruction….etc. The web has certainly brought the world to our desktops, and other technologies allow us to spy from space into locals normally hidden by fences; tempting all to get a closer look. It is a delicate balance for which we all must have a ethical code of conduct.
I will continue to 'shoot' from public lands, request to get closer and take only photographs.
