    I think I've posted this one before as a color shot, but I thought I'd play around with it on the computer, & make a b&w shot of it...

    This is a coal train coming out of Tunnel #2 on Goad Mtn...

    The color I got from my last great fall, was black and blue! I did everything I could to hide it!:D :D :D :D

    Just curious Charlie, How many gauge members are honored by places on your layout?

    Nice shots Charlie! I hope you don't mind my turning the last one into a sepia toned pic.

    The B&W shots look right at home in the steam era don't they. Growing up with steam, all I can remeber was black and white photography. My Dad would only get one colour film a year to take at Christmas time. They were expensive and rare in those days.

    You're right, black and white go perfectly with steam. Nice shots Charlie!
