    Finally a railfanning spot on the ol' Las Cruces & Portales...Let's see what's coming down the line...

    A consist from the yard at Santa Rosa headed to Portales, with a Heavy 4-8-2 on the point...

    Next, an SP box car (English Model Supply re-release)...

    A SF Reefer (Ye Ol' Huff & Puff)

    A GN stock car (Athearn) trailing behind the SF box...

    And bringing up the rear a LC&P drover caboose (Ye Ol..)

    Hope this is the first of more roll-bys...

    (I hope all this pasting works...)sign1

    Thanks for your comments guys..!! A little effort to try to come up to you guys' standards. :D

    I didn't post pics of the SF box, or the 3M box. The pictures I took of these two were all yellow. Don't know why as they were all taken at the same time under the same conditions. Still haven't got the hang of my camera...:cry:

    I have the same problem with my new camera: while I'm busy setting up a scene, certain settings return to a default value if too much time elapses between shots. Usually it's the setting for exposure, but sometimes I allow so much time between pictures that the camera shuts down completely. This is a feature designed to save the batteries, but in my application it's a real pain, as I do all layout pictures using an AC adapter.
