Thirsty Work for an Old Steam Engine.

This wonderful old steam engine stopped in front of the shop to take on fresh supplies of water from the river.  It took around fifteen minutes to fill the tank and then it very slowly pulled away again.  More of a great beast than a machine it was obviously much loved and cared for by its operatives.  The Korean ladies in the photo below were quite smitten by it.
