Lakeside & Haverthwaite steam railway in Cumbria UK. Only used for tourist rides, but anyway quite fun.

It's a mix between an old time shot and Thomas the Train (not sure if Thomas the Train is a popular show in all part of the world).

I love steam railroading, and this photo captures the whole experience of the water stop. The POV and the way you framed this one keeps the whole scene nice and compact without leaving out anything.
Here's how they do the same operation, taking on water, in New Mexico on the Cumbres & Toltec RR.

It's not as tidy, but it gets the 5,000 gallon tank on the tender filled up quickly.

The image is quite fun too and the processing enhances the effect. I would like to learn how some day. I love the tight framing.
