I'm Tabitha (aged 10) and I feel very passionate about the steam train as I have gone on it many times when it comes to Ballarat and love it.
It is a real treasure from the past.
I want to publicise that I do not like graffiti. Why do people do this?
I love watching trains go by, day in day out.
When freight trains go by they are covered in graffiti and that is horrible to watch.
Now someone has graffitied the lovely old steam train.
I suggest to vandals to keep your work on paper and, if you want people to see it, upload your graffiti to the internet.
We need to look after old things so everyone gets a chance to enjoy them.
In future, it would be nice to see no graffiti at all.
