Modern technology rolls over grounds built in the late 1800's at Jamestown.

I can believe that. Just look how horribly warped the rails are. Heck, I'm surprised the trains can even stay on those.

When I first saw this picture I was thinking perhaps the distortion was because of lens distortion, the rails are not as bad as that picture makes it LOOK like that are??

Some engineers get it others ignore ya. And I think there are even a few who get annoyed

Not to get too nerdy,but this was the conductor. In the US, the engineer sits in the right seat of the cab. This goes back to the days of steam when they would catch their orders from the ground. It is also easier to spot passenger trains at platforms that way.

Train crews are just like people everywhere. The nice, the mean, and the in-between :-)

Cormac,

Rene is from the Netherlands.........

I am indeed. Traveled 5 weeks through the west of the USA in 2016. I enjoyed every day of it. And yes we still have steam locomotives, although not so much anymore. End of the month we have a steam festival about 25km from where I live. I will upload some pictures soon after. See you again in September :-)

Cheers,
Rene.

At least you get to shoot steam once in awhile.

I finally made it to downtown West Palm Beach to check out the new Brightline trains that run from WPB to Miami and the new station they built.

I'm drawn to how the mountain range on the left aligns with the shape of the front hood.
