Not my best train shots, but I like it. Few nights ago was out setting up, look at settings, etc... for night photography and at the last min saw train coming. First photo... 3 photos with 3 different timing and blend into 1. And 2nd photo... 2-3 seconds exposure. Canon 70d and Tokina 11-16

Love trains! Loved em since I was a little kid. Dunno, there is just something about them I find fascinating. Sadly I don't have many train shots at all.

I don't capture trains much at all, but this engine caught my eye. I always wonder what the engineer is doing...

I can answer that, the Engineer is busy doing all sorts of important stuff to run the train, now the conductor is also busy and he is doing this

:-D I'm just kidding, he is a great conductor and I wish we had more like him. We are on CSX Philadelphia subdivision in a siding waiting on eastbound traffic and we are going to be waiting at least another hour before we go.

I always had a dream when I was a young boy that I would be a conductor someday.

My dad was a conductor for New York Central, retiring from Penn Central in 1975. He of course got the privilege of riding in something I think they called a caboose at the back of the train..... I got to ride in one of them things one time :-)

lol, yea this guy! This was actually my first attempt at train photos. Put the camera on an electrical box near the track on a gorilla pod. Stood back with a remote shutter. Was pleasantly surprised to see the guy waving!
