    So, I was walking down around the rail yard today, wanting to get some train shots, I saw this passenger train, waiting at the station, so I walked up clser to it, to take some shots, something tipped me off that it was about to leave.

    So, I walked back around the bend and sat near the tracks so I could get a shot of it leaving, since there is a nice archway bridge that it passes under. Trying to judge how far back I should be, was harder than I thought, both from the bridge, and from the side of the tracks. It wasn't going very fast, but it sure moves alot of air when it passes.

    And yes, one other thing that I have wanted to do but never did before is:

    Thanks for looking.

    that's funny about the coins, i've seen that done before, but never done it myself. I thought it was illegal too, but now that i think about it, they have those little machines at Disneyland and Magic Mountain and similar places that will make a souvenir out of your coinage... Mickey Mouse wouldn't break the law, would he???

    Thank you all for the comments, I'm glad you like them. As for the legallity thing, I think it's illegal to deface money, and that would probably qualify, but also I would not be surprised if it is illegal to put things on railroad tracks. I guess I'm a criminal... Yikes! :)

    Chiller: that would be the coolest thing. I hope you do see it, and if anyone else sees it and shoots it too. A complete cross Canada adventure.

    It is illegal to deface a coin of the realm, for commonwealt people it is.Looks as though I am not the only naughty boy around. Ernie
