Thanks Bob. The original photo was technically good, but there was nothing to draw the eye. So I played with split toning and contrast settings and managed to get this.
Cropped it down to get rid of the guff. I don't know why, but it's one of my favourite photos at the moment.

Thanks for looking

I like the panoramic cropping that you did. It just works.

Definitely has that classic nostalgic feeling of looking at old photos.

Great photo!

Thanks sweetpapa.

I'm planning on getting it printed up on canvas and give it to my brother (on the right) as a present for his family. Just have to find the right price
