A steam train runs between the country towns of Maldon and Castlemaine as a tourist attraction and all these derelict old carriages are sitting around awaiting restoration. I really wanted to get a shot of the train coming in to the station but we didn't time things right.
I chose this shot over another I liked better because this one makes more of a feature of the tracks.

I like the lines, perhaps a bit "overcooked."

eta: having looked again it is timeless and dreamy, and a good composition.
