The Shape of Things to Come! by fishers

The Shape of Things to Come!

Rather proud of this picture on two counts, it proves I do listen to Ian when he talks to me about trains, and I got its picture first.

This is the new Azuma train which is on trial runs before going into service. The name Azuma means East in Japanese and some of these trains are destined to run on the East Coast main line. They will replace the current Electric and High Speed Trains, in around two years time.

Good shot, well done on beating Ian.

@lhart @seattlite @777margo @pyrrhula @sangwann Thank you for your lovely comments. Ian still hasn't managed to see the train, so I am still aglow. Katharine

Dear Katharine, Thanks for you so nice comment. You will n`t have much trouble with it. The weather conditions avoid it most times .

Very nice capture. These new high speed trains sure do not have the character of the steam engines.

What a difference when one sees this modern designed train and compare it to the old steam engines. I must say, I like them both.
