This is a glimpse into the private life of HM we see very rarely.
From the above article:

With a head- scarf to keep coal dust and smoke out of her hair - and a beaming smile - the Queen appeared as much a steam enthusiast as the driver, her friend Leopold de Rothschild. The Queen travelled to Exbury Gardens, in Hampshire, which is owned by the Rothschild family, for a private ceremony in which she named her friend's new train.

With a little curtain-unveiling no less!

The Queen has tonnes of class to get on that train.

I love the pictures in the online newspaper websites of the Queen enjoying herself.

Her Majesty seems happy. Could it be that she is pleased with the new Governor General of Australia?
