    Fantastic photos! You have quite an eye. I especially liked the 'end of the line' - rail scrap that would look good modeled on any layout.

    Never delete those photos : )

    Beautiful. Nice mix of color and B & W which adds a depth of flavor to the whole mix.

    Top notch photos Brian, we "foreigners" don't get to see much of North American real railroading. Are their switching locos REALLY that clean? :confused: :eek: :eek: :D :D

    Excellent photography Brian. While I like them all, the one of Chicago Union Station is striking and I am amazed at how clear and it is and the great choice of where to take the photo from. Station buildings are usually have poor lighting and make them difficult to photograph
    Thanks also for providing film and exposure information
