    Post your Train shots!
    CSX has recently changed up its local schedules and I now have a daylight train to watch in both directions!

    I was so excited that I went out in the overcast to catch the train. I didn't care how the picture looked -- I was stoked to be trackside with any kind of light. It's just a short local, but it sure is a welcome sight.

    That must be a really sweet lens and I agree, just a perfect range for trains.

    I have the Fuji 35mm F1.4 & it is just magic. These days I'm more likely to shoot trains with my 18-135. It is harder to get close to trains these days without getting a trespassing charge. It's not like the old days when I wandered all over train yards & engine facilities & no one said a word. Well maybe they'd say hi & remind me to be careful. Oh how times have changed.

    I had the 18-105 when I shot with my Nikon's, before Fuji grabbed me. It is a very nice lens. You can find them for not much money on the used market. People dismiss them, because it was a kit lens. They are wrong it is a fine lens that is value priced.

    Nice shot of that CSX Geep running long hood forward Sandpatch. Perfect with it passing the signals. Cloudy day or not, well done.

    I saw this guy in Fostoria Ohio headed south on the old C&O line to Columbus. He is crossing the diamonds of the NKP now the NS.

    A couple of years back me and one of my railroad enthusiast friends were out one night playing with multiple flash set ups, and this came through on the BNSF Aurora IL. Sub. We do see a few CSX out here but not true CSX line. Neither one of use new it was coming through let alone on the point, until we "chimped" our shots. Unfortunately for me number one flash did not fire, and have tried to save the shot in the digital darkroom. Maybe one of you CSX fans can get luck a grab a shot of it one day.

    Wow Rick what a great catch. I'd be over the moon to catch that one. These days I don't use flash, but back in the olden days I used a fan fold flash with #5 bulbs & painted locomotives with light. Although they weren't moving as I assume that one was.

    That's a fantastic night shot of CSX No.1! I stumbled onto a lucky shot of the same unit in September, but it was in dreary overcast.

    When I was a teen, I was messing around with a flash one night as the local switch crew worked. I also had a cassette tape recorder running to record audio. My puny flash was hopelessly outmatched and on the tape you can hear the distant voice of a switchman say, "Hey, what's that with the light there?"
