They are in the process of adding a third track here. The switch in the background reminds me of a piece of Atlas Snap Track from my old HO days.

Two shots from a train passing me by earlier this evening. I was trying to find an appropriate thread to post these to and this felt right. Which composition do you prefer? I appreciate any constructive criticism.

Edit: I am currently living in Banff, AB, and we have been experiencing some wildfires nearby. The smoke has been lingering for weeks.. This was a good day, but you can still see the smoke is present.

I think these are just killer shots. What a cool idea and execution. Very well done.

I agree with Bill, very cool idea and execution. Since you asked I prefer the second composition but they're both great.

I'd easily take the second one as the mountains play more favorably in that composition, being off to the left more. Too centered in the first image. Mostly noticeable because i have something to compare with, the other shot.

interesting as the rectangular slots of the windows play well with the same shapes found at the top of the bridges sides.
