I HATE pink shirts!!!

Delmont, Switzerland: Everybody was on a line to take photographs of the steam train to Oensingen with the Eb 2/4 35 in front and the Mallet SCB Ed 2x2/2 196 as rear helper, as suddenly a pink shirt comes in the picture and shoots against the sun, ignoring the other photographs shouting him to get away...

Then why do you show it? Three times... ;-)
By the way: shouting photographers are equally idiotic and annoying. Especially on a station stop of a public special. Once I even witnessed how they shouted at a little child wanting to get a glimpse of the loco just for a lousy platform shot nobody will ever look at again!

Apart from that, shouldn't the photos here be historic (25+ years old)?

He probably got confused with the vintage photos instead of photos of vintage trains. I'll move the shot to the right category.

Ironically, the guy in the pink shirt is what makes the shot interesting. :) 25 years from now folks will look at the photo and laugh and say "Look how people dressed back then!" just like we do to shots from the 1970's.
