A trip by a steam locomotive

steam_train5Have you ever taken a trip by a steam locomotive?

We could not resist that idea, so we decided to make a small trip from Graested to Helsingor on North Zealand one Sunday last summer. We traveled by a vintage steam train for about one hour through the breathtaking Danish countryside.
steam_train3The first steam locomotive was made in 1804 by Richard Trevithick, British inventor and mining engineer. Steam locomotives dominated railway transport from the early 19th century until the middle of 20 century, when they were gradually superseded by electric and diesel locomotives.
