“The wheel of fortune turns around incessantly,
and who can say to himself, I shall today be uppermost.”
~ Confucius ~



 This post will be linked to Friday My Town Shoot Out.
The theme of the week is ‘Wheels’.

 The old engine wheel is an all-year-round decoration at the entrance of a restaurant recently opened in the premises of an exhibition hall which once upon a time was an engine shed.

There is also an old engine kept inside the exhibition hall :



  1. It seems I saw this train on a long ago post. But not the wheel, it is so pretty, and perfect for a restaurant decoration.

  2. A lovely locomotive and nice treatment.

  3. Ginny, you remember right. The photo of the locomotive is from last year I think. The restaurant however just recently opened; I have not been inside it but just took a look outside one day when I happened to be in the neighbourhood. I think it's only open when there is some event going on. Most events in this place have quite expensive entrance fees to start with, so not a place I visit very frequently.

  4. beautiful and I like the holly trim around it. i do love old trains and this is a great one.

  5. Oh I love the old train. Trains always make for interesting shots. I also like your wheel of fortune and the quote that goes along with it. Very nice.

  6. I always watched the Wheel of fortune, and wish I was there, but I have no idea how much things are.

  7. I love that big red wheel! Wow.

  8. A very magnificent shot of the train!

  9. Two beautiful shots but my favourite has to be the train - I like the olde worlde treatment you have given it.

  10. I like the train shot but I also really like the quote from Confucious.

  11. Yes. We never know what's in store for us from one moment to the next.

    What's not to love about old trains - no, don't answer that it was rhetorical.
