Puffing Vicky

Puffing Vicky

Another picture taken during the Phillip Island trip. This was at the dried grass around the pyramid rock viewing area. The picture was post processed to give as much warmth, and saturation and vignetting too. The orange saturation was reduce as not to let Shayen looking as if she has a cooked skin. The title was given as the picture reminded me of puffing billy. Not only because she was smoking, but also during the trip some people mentioned about riding the puffing billy.

The Puffing Billy Railway is a narrow gauge 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) gauge heritage railway in the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne, Australia. The railway was originally one of four experimental narrow gauge lines of the Victorian Railways opened around the beginning of the 20th century.

The Puffing Billy Railway is kept in operation through the efforts of volunteers of the Puffing Billy Preservation Society, although intensive year-round operations necessitate a small band of paid employees to keep things going behind the scenes.

The railway aims to preserve the line as near as possible to how it was in the first three decades of its existence, but with particular emphasis on the early 1920s.
