The first image feels really timeless at first glance despite the “anoraks “ ... what with the milk churns and the old suitcases and trunks ... It feels like the age of steam....

Thanks Clicker, a lot of the heritage railway add these little props to the stations, the lamps on the platform are gas powered, though the train itself was never used in the UK. After the war it was used by the Polish State Railway until bought by the KWVR in the 70's.
