    Have you thought of putting a camera with a UWA very near trackside right at grade level and triggering remotely? Might get some interesting shots, especially using a slower shutter speed on a hotshot.

    I like the first one of the train coming out of the fog - cool.

    I don't know why trains are so fascinating.

    @tirediron I have thought about doing that in the past, seems like it would be fun to try to do

    @vintagesnaps Thanks, and I have wondered the same, First time I have ever saw a train had to been around 1998-1999, Me and my parents went to a KOA campground in Bowling Green and we stopped at a crossing and 2 Amtrak's flew by, as far as I know, ive been Hooked ever since.

    N&W 611 - what a beauty. What's going on above her pilot though? Looks like a mess of crumpled sheet metal!

    I have no clue what the hell they did too her in Spencer last year. 611 looked good the last 2 years then she came out all funky this year.

    Hope they will be able to do some restoration on that, this is the cool train you've photographed before that I like.

    This is nice in B&W. The sky is great with the white clouds to do in B&W, sets off the train nicely.

    611 is back at Spencer Shops for repairs, No idea if she will do excursions next year, nothing has been announced yet. It seem too be all on Amtrak for next year.

    @vintagesnaps Thanks.
