transportation heritage

UNITED KINGDOM, Irwell Vale : A steam locomotive operated by the East Lancashire Railway transports passengers on a heritage railway experience in Irwell Vale, near Bury, north west England on July 16, 2015. The East Lancashire Railway preserves, restores and offers vintage train journeys with steam and diesel locomotives. The original East Lancashire Railway ceased to exist in 1859 but the name was revived in 1987 offering railway experiences on the formerly decommissioned Heywood to Rawtenstall section of line.   AFP PHOTO / OLI SCARFF                        

The Kelpies tower a colossal 30 metres above the Forth & Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland. Sculpted by Andy Scott, The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Central Scotland.

Took some pictures after a request from CReehal.
