This is an old photo which I recently scanned. It was taken in early January 2000 in my home town of Duffel in Belgium with my trusty old Olympus OM/1. The reason the shot is to grainy is that I used to have a bit of a thing for fast films, in particular Kodak Gold 800 Zoom. As seems to be the norm for this series, I’m not really sure why I like this shot, I just do and have since the first time I saw it when I got my photos back from my local One Hour Photo (remember those?).

This is Belgian electric locomotive number 2334 which rather un-imaginatively belongs to NMBS/SNCB Class 23. These locomotives are still in service today despite now being over 50 years old (having been built between 1955 and 1957).
