Thursday Special : Eye Contact

I haven’t taken part in this challenge for a long time, but found an interesting picture for this one.  During the summer days we visited the West Cork Model Railway Village in Clonakilty, Co Cork.  This was such a fun place, not only for kids and train enthusiasts, but for the whole family.

Their website describes the village as a fully scaled handmade model of the old West Cork Railway Line with fully working trains and the towns that the railway served , Clonakilty, Kinsale, Dunmanway and Bandon.
Each model is a replica of the town as it was back in the 1940’s and it’s a great way to make local history real for all ages.

There is also a museum, and this old machine was one of the attractions – it looks like its making eye contact with me…like an alien from another time sending me a message!

    The face looks quite smug… Not quite so smug now that someone has stolen the cigar from the side of his mouth though.
