Excellent photo.  At first, I thought it was from early 1900`s. Bagdon really puts a living visual affect to his work.

So curious about that single car puffing along. Where is it going and why is it alone? When was this photo taken?

Beautiful in how it transports the viewer to another more peaceful place and time. I love it!

A great black and white 'picture postcard' that stands out with its stark beauty. A perfect Christmassy tree on the left,in contrast to the poles opposite with their wires so clearly seen. It seems that the figures are going about their work/play as usual, in spite of extreme cold. A good picture.  j.e. s.

@Shannon THi Shannon, it is not a car, it is a train, precisely a steam train. This is an old route that is still used for the tourists in winter holidays.

The photo was taken 4th January 2013.
