    Nice pics this week folks!
    Hey Herc..I've got two of the BB F45's(ones a FP45 shell)
    Still waiting on Tom's weekly runby.
    Anyway.....


    This weeks composite from me.

    If you look off in the distance, there's a guy sitting on a wall.When I took the background pic, he was talking to me(actually yelling across the river).

    Now, he's enjoying a warm, late autumn day, watching Southwick And Winsted GP38-2 spotting a car at the furniture factory.

    Saw this trailer in a parking lot near my house yesterday coming home from work. Of course...Didn't have the camera.
    So I took these today.

    Hmmm....I do have a couple of Athearn BN trailers...........

    I went to the Milan Train show today and picked these 2 Atlas GP15-1s on a 2 fer deal that made my jaw drop..I also picked up a MRC Tech2 power pack for $10.00

    The GP15s will crawl from tie to tie from the box and they look super.

    I like that view, Jeffrey - it looks like early morning, with the haze not yet quite burned off. :thumb::thumb:

    Ralph, great shot - what was the exposure and when/how far did you move the train during the exposure? Did it take several attempts?

    Hi Rusty,

    I just set my Canon Powershot A720 on a tripod and clicked when the train went by just on that one attempt. A happy accident. :)

    Nice shot, Ralph. ;):-D
    The train doesn't have to be moving very fast to get that blurred image which "suggests" speed. In the photo below, the train, which was very heavy, was moving upgrade at probably no more that 15mph:
