Wheels No Tires - last entry
Another literal interpretation of the challenge name.

Nice shot of the model locomotive. Some steam locomotive models have small rubber "tire" on one of the sets of driver wheels to improve traction. The real locomotives actually have a steel tire that is heated up to expand it and then fitted onto the wheel. It then shrinks very solidly to the wheel. For the purpose of this challenge, we will ignore these "tires". It is car tires that I didn't want to see.

Nice detail. I'd like to see the whole loco!
