Okay, this is certainly not my best, but it is actually one of my favorites. It was the first shot I ever took with an L lens. I had just been to the camera store and borrowed a used 400 f/5.6L that I was considering buying. I went to my favorite spot, and this group of helpers was heading east to pick up a westbound train in Thousand Palms.

This is actually a scan from a slide taken a good few years ago when I worked in Zimbabwe. At least it was taken with a Canon Camera (an A1).

That's called a Beyer-Garrett, and they ran a lot of them in Africa. I don't know why the design didn't catch on in the US since it was a great way to get the locomotive's weight over the driving wheels.

Great shot.

In fact, these are all really wonderful. Thanks, everyone.

When my son drives, we rarely stop, let alone slow down.

I managed a couple, though

This is one of my better ones. It's an old film scan, so disregard the softness.
