Apologies once again for filling your inboxes with off-topic material.
I have been uploading images to Flickr...
This time from the Nilgiri Mountain Railway again and a special excursion train from Ooty to Ketti.
There are also some scenic views and a quick look round the town of Ooty.
Take a look if you are interested: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157705106628152
Back in March I was fortunate enough to ride the metre gauge Niligiri Mountain Railway in India - it was a brilliant experience; scenery, steam, and stations with all the paraphernalia from a bygone era.

Photographs from my trip on 2nd March can be seen here:
I also have a separate album of images from on-shed at Coonoor showing the amazing 0-8-2 rack locomotives under repair etc.
Take a look if you are interested.
