I caught this one sitting waiting on a new crew. I found out that this is a place that is used for a crew changing station so I'll watch to see what else I find here.

Nice.

I wonder if they would let you park you car on the tracks and get a shot like the train is getting ready to hit you? :-)

Subject's too centered, too cut off, and did I mention not enough BN? :p

I like it with the yellow leading lines from the pavement. A different frame wouldn't work as well.

So I take it that you will not be buying prints! Well I like the shot as is. I wanted a close enough shot to show details and I liked the way the yellow lines worked. I doubt that the engineer was willing to move the train just to suit my needs.

What's BN? Barnes and Noble? Bahrain, the island nation? Google didn't pull up anything photographic.

That would have been neat, but they have the end of the asphalt blocked off with a pipe guard so you can't just drive up on it. And I drive a PT/C so there is very little "off road" driving.

You're right. I did some other angles but there is a wooden fence blocking most of the train, and the other angles that I could get did not work for me.

Ding ding, we have a winner! BNSF was formed when Burlington Northern at the Santa Fe merged last decade.
Photosguy: I agree about the lines, but I think it would have worked more if there was a line going straight to the engine, and the nose wasn't quite as dark! (Mmm, shadows/highlights)

You aren't seeing what color managed viewers are seeing? ;)

Nice catch...and now you know the spot to catch future exchanges...who knows what neat stuff you might encounter. Shots look fine on Firefox 3....so you can ignore the critique that you didn't request. ;) Hope to see more trains in the future.

THanks, well the color looks good on my calibrated monitor when I edited them and they look good in Firefox.
