    Re: Post your Train shots!

    Love the shots from the way-back machine Sandpatch.

    Here is an old one I stumbled on. 611 Southbound in Lewis Center Ohio. I'd guess I shot this in the mid 80's.

    The 611 came through Chicago the week of 8/3/83 that is my son's birthday. Made the towns front page in the newspaper, I can remember because I bought a paper the week he was born and saved it for him till he was 21 and gave it to him.

    When I was in Sioux City, IA I took to photographing interesting graffiti on rail cars.

    Some of these guys are pretty amazing with a can of spray paint!

    Below are a few of my favorites!

    Thanks SP!

    It was an Amtrak stop. The station is on the right. It was restored many years ago. Not sure what happened, but a new station was built about a mile down the track. The city uses this station as a storage area now.

    Such a shame! I love the look of the old Florida stations with their Spanish mission appearance and colorful stucco.

    I have a handful of Florida slides, such as one taken in Wildwood and the other in Ocala, both in
    March of 1987. I'm finding that with my new scanner, you can't turn a dark slide into something wonderful any more than ya can make something wonderful out of a dark DSLR photograph. Everything gets kind of muddy and with overediting, it looks much worse.

    It's interesting that these look a tiny bit pixelated here, but look better when clicked on to expand them. They look good on my laptop screen. I usually upload files of 500 to 600KB here and these are in that range too.

    I think I'm starting to get the hang of scanning. I want to be sure I explore every aspect before I dive in to scan my collection. I was talking to a guy at a model railroad club and he said he scanned hundreds of his slides then discovered he had the scanning resolution set too low and had to start all over again. Oh, by the way every slide here was shot with a Nikon, most likely my EL-2.

    Taken July 1980, Conrail SD-45 helpers ("snappers" in PRR parlance) at work on the eastern slope of the Alleghenies west of Altoona. Friends and I camped out for a weekend nearby. This was when the PRR's four-track mainline was still intact. In a questionable call, CR pulled up one track several years later.
