  • Description

    Southend, Essex.

    The Kursaal Flyer is a full-sized replica of a late 19th century American Transcontinental locomotive. The replica can drive on roads because underneath it is a three tonne lorry, the only bit of steam power is in its fairground organ.

M/S of the train passing the camera, the girls wave.
