    Two evenings ago, just a little after sunset, I was out hiking around the hills taking the dog for a walk and just happened to have my camera with me as this freight rolled through. Imagine my surprise when lo' and behold last night it came through again heading the opposite direction! I think he's lost! Shouldn't he be out on the mainline somewhere?

    Excellent lighting, feels warm and cozy. I must say however that you might want to paint the sides of the rails a rust brown color to make the scene tons more believeable!

    Haven't you heard about that branch line that chromes all their rails? Seriously though, I did not even think about that until you pointed it out and now it sticks out like a sore thumb! Seeing as how I just got an airbrush for Christmas, this looks like a good place to try it out! Thanks for the criticism.:)

    I'm behind the camera and the dog was off chasing a rabbit!
