    I think all little boys (and some little girls) are really enamored by railroading. I was no exception but only recently re-found my love for them but in photography. I have met some of the greats from the east coast that shoot trains, and they have led me down the path of least resistance...:lol: :heart:

    I love the old style of the first one but the colours in the second one really caught my eye. They're lovely!

    Thanks a bunch... I take tons of railroad photos both in digital and medium format... but I think the horizontal ones may be above posting restrictions in size... or I would post a couple...

    I too love railroad photography, just have not had much opportunity myself to go out and shoot it

    In particular, I like your first one in the first post, as well as the last link in your most recent post....just ad ifferent shot compared to most railroad photography

    Thanks GoM I appreciate that... I tend to shoot outside the box for railroading. Since most of the local northeastern scenic lines know me at least by sight I get a little more leeway then some. I have a really nice coupler shot from in a repair pit and got raked over the coals from a bunch of railfans because they thought I was being unsafe...LOL

    These are really nice. I'll have to share this with my father in law, who is a huge train buff. Nice work!

    #1 is a great shot. I would like to see it with the modern day people ps'd out of it.

    #2 is awesome. Reminds me of a poster you would see for a railroad line.

    I too love old trains but not to many running in this neck of the woods.
