The 2nd shot looks pretty "authentic". Maybe a tad bit of vignetting to add to the period appearance. Nice surprise to see, especially the grain effect. :)

Thanks for the kind comments. This steam excursion line just opened near us a few weeks ago. This was the first opportunity we've had to see it, so we're just learning our way around the route to find the best spots to shoot from. The locomotive is a replica - oil-fired and steam-powered - hand-built by Kloke Locomotive Works. Mr. Kloke also built a replica of the Leviathan 63 and has plans to build a replica of the Lincoln funeral train. If all goes well, he wants to re-create the trip President Lincoln's funeral train took from DC to Springfield, IL. If you Google "2015 Lincoln funeral train", you can get more info.

That was tied down at Empire, which, for those unfamiliar with California's central valley farming towns, is east of Modesto.

A couple from today. In the first one freight train was stopping right in front of me for a crew change - you can really see the heat coming off the dynamic brakes.
