Honestly not really a fan of either shot. Probably because of the drab, boring sky. I'll be redoing the second shot monday I think. I do like the building in the background. Maybe I'll play around with different framing, trying to include the high tension towers you can vaguely see on the left. Also I just wanted to get out with my new 400mm I've had since tuesday and not shot before this.

I'll take my tripod this time, that damn 400 looks like I'm having a seizure while looking through the EVF. 800 sec. really is overkill for train shots anyway. But had to compensated for lack of IS. Other than that, I'm very happy with this lens! As an aside, it pushes me to shoot in manual mode, including ISO, so I can get all the settings exactly how I want them! I also like how the longer focal length separates the train from the background a bit more than my shorter lenses!

The first engine is a Penn Central engine, isn't that correct?? You took that photo Saturday May 12, 2018 someplace??? I was thinking perhaps you took that picture back after the Pennsylvania Railroad merged with New York Central, (1968-1976)

Where did you see that engine, and how was that possible now in 2018 in actual use???

Please correct me if that is not a Penn Central engine.

The 2nd engine I know well being at the National New York Central Museum in Elkhart.

I believe that Norfolk Southern has a number of locomotives in the Penn Central Heritage scheme. Undoubtedly this is one of them.

I've never heard of Penn central. So your very likely correct. It was on the NS mainline in new Carlisle on smilax road. Both shirts were. I walked down the access road each direction from the crossing. I figured youd know where I shot the above locomotive!

With all the old run down engines I've seen around here from not only ns. But bnsf, union Pacific and particularly Canadian national. It wouldn't surprise me if they were still running ancient company engines as well.

Norfolk Southern has for the last many years run out of the Elkhart Indiana RR yard. I have not seen any PC engines in the last several decades so I was surprised to see the one that Cormac took the picture of.

New York Central and the Pennsylvania rail roads merged back in 1968 to make the Penn Central rail lines.

What do you mean by the statement "Both shirts were"?

The PC locomotive is part of Norfolk Southern's "Heritage" fleet. They have modern diesels painted for all their parent roads, including the NYC (SD70ACE #1066). Union Pacific does the same.
