    When I was in India in the north I got the steam train to Darjeeling, It was a slow and beautiful ride in the mountains, a 'must go on' if you ever go to Darjeeling.

    Oh! I sooo wish #3 wasn't motion blured! What a dramatic shot.

    Are you panning in #1? I ask because the stack is ever so slightly out of focus, but the rest of the train seems fine. The background also appears slighly blurred, so that's why I figured it was panning. It's a neat looking train. I'm partial to steam locomotives. I wanted to be a steam locomotive engineer when I grew up, lol.

    #2 is nice, but seems a tad underexposed.

    It sounds like you had quite an adventure. I've never ridden on a steam locomotive (unless you count the one at Six Flags, lol). I would jump at the chance! Especially the ones that do long, multi-day tours. I would be in heaven.
