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!

Seeing this fly by back in the late 60's on it's North American Tour and get to see the train at Washington D.C. Union Station, is where my love of trains began. Sooo good to see it alive today! :) :) :) :)

Is there any way to find schedules for freight trains? Got 2 Union Pacific tracks through this tiny town.

Forgive my ignorance, but what do you mean by 3/4 train shot?
