Confessions of a Melancholic Train Nut

I really like the trains of the past. But they make me kind of sad.
Because most of them are gone. Just like my childhood. I dont really think the old trains in museums count. Again, my childhood is something different than the childish behaviour I can be prone to in my middle age.

But back to the trains. Here is a picture of the kind of train i like:

Engine #8

The picture was taken somtimes right after 1916.
Here is the same engine photographed by me in 1995 or something:

Engine #8, modern picture

I my mind it is really no question about what picture is the best.
