    Early on, I sold some of my Dad's vintage Nikkor lenses on eBay after reading that their full frame design wouldn't work well with medium format cameras like my D5100. I learned later that wasn't totally accurate advice. The one lens of his that I most regret selling was his 35mm "wide angle" that would have made a wonderful 50mm prime lens on my D5100.

    Of course, working with various manual settings at home is fun, but that might not be the case outside in the hot sun with gnats and mosquitoes flying about.

    I bought an adapter that lets me use my dad's Nikon glass on my Fuji cameras. The Nikkor 55 micro is one I have my eye on. Great piece of glass.

    This morning's CSX L647 rolling south at Camden, SC. A somewhat backlit shot, but it was best to be out before the summer heat cranked up. Typical eastern railroad scene with overgrown vegetation encroaching everywhere. I often stomp down tall weeds, but I'd need power equipment to take down this stand.

    Nice catch Sandpatch. A nice somewhat late model EMD on call this morning. I don't mind the greenery, looks good to my old eyes.

    How does one find their local freight train schedule so they can set up for photos? Or do you have to learn by spending a lot of time waiting?

    I live in an old Delaware & Hudson railroad town that had a passenger station, freight house, maintenance shop, roundhouse and large yard. One of my uncles was an engineer back in the days of the D&H's two Baldwin Sharknose diesels. I wish I was old enough to have taken some photos of them. I do have N-scale models though.

    Amtrak still passes through town on the route between NYC and Montreal, and there's some traffic to Rutland, VT.

    Freight trains do move on schedules, but they're generally not firm like passenger train schedules and are not available to the public. I carry a railroad radio scanner to help out, but the transmissions can sometimes be confusing depending on train density, familiarity with the area and train numbers heard. You might try the local Facebook groups and see what's up. There are members who seem to have a pulse on everything going on.

    The D&H was an exceptionally cool railroad. I have a few poor quality shots of the D&H at Colonie, NY taken in July 1983 and some others at Hudson, PA like this one taken 10/04/1981.

    FEC does publish what they call a flexible schedule on their web site. Others may do the same might help get you in the ballpark.

    The D&H had some interesting steam power and their reknown CEO Leanor F. Loree in office 1907-1938 wasn't shy about experimentation. Love your N Scale models! I model in N too, an anthracite roads fan.
