Hi everyone,

Don't know if anyone else knows about it, but Train Festival 2009 will be in Owosso the weekend of July 24-26.

Highlights will be the Pere Marquette 1225, Nickel Plate 765, and just recently announced the Southern Pacific "Daylight" 4449 - all operating steam locomotives.

All three locomotives will be running all day excursions up to Alma and then returning, plenty of photo ops available!

I do know that the tickets for the night photo sessions are sold out. :(

There will be a few other steam locos on premises for photos and tours.

If you want more info, visit the website - http://trainfestival20​09.com/ (external link)

See you there!

Also, being in Owosso puts you a short distance from Durand, home of Durand Union Station and the Michigan Railroad Museum.

Probably one of these, but I need to see what my schedule will be.
Race 4 - July 25-26
Race 5 - August 29-30 Plan your own? There are people in your area. Good work, Troy!


I'll be sure to be there, to put my 1d3 through some runs.


I suck at Photoshop.

I didn't know the SP Daylight was going to be there. I guess we'll have to go now for sure. Thanks for the heads up.

Jon.

I just found out that if anyone wants to chase the 4449, it will travel from Chicago to Owosso on July 19th.

Michigan doesn't have very many photogenic waterfalls either.

Really? I found tons of them in the U.P.

On another note, I haven't seen much in this thread about landscape opportunities. I was just about to start a thread myself, then I found this one.

I guess I have to understand what you feel is photogenic!

Munising has nice falls. Ontonogan (Lake of the Clouds area) has many excellent falls. We couldn't manage to see them all in a week. Although some of them can be a bit of a trek and the best position to photograph might be a bit of work on it's own.

Years ago, I found a book in the library titled (I think) "100 Waterfalls in Michigan". It had pics, descriptions, & location directions, & yes, almost all of them were in the UP.

Has the MI group ever thought of using all of their best images and creating a book? I've seen some really nice hard cover books that are almost nothing but photos. $35+ each. Of course splitting the profits would be something to figure out. ;) There's such a diverse crowd here it would make for an interesting book.

That's an interesting idea but I don't know how you would do it. I guess you'd have to start out by finding people to submit images.

Jon.
