    Can't let this thread fall too far back. . .

    I think this is still my personal favorite of my layout photos so far - my apologies if you've seen it before. . . . An SP westbound crossing over a dry Tehachapi Creek while a pig train holds in the loop above.

    The Sunbeam, train #14, is heading south from Dallas to Houston in late afternoon in 1938. I bashed the P-14 Pacific out of a Con Cor Streamlined Hudson. The cars a kit bashed from Rivarossi heavyweight and lightweight cars.

    What do you guys use for light on these shots? Mine always look dark and shadowy. I`d like to take some nice shots of my GP60`s to post here to keep this thread alive

    Wlal,

    I use a 4 foot bridge module in my garage. The picture above of the two kodachromes was shot in the garage with bright but not direct sunshine. On my caboose picture, I pulled the garage door down to "darken" the shot.

    I'm not smart enough yet to figure out my camera.

    Beautiful shots gang! This is one of Trainboard's best threads.

    I'm just now starting to notice how badly my Cotton Belt TM's walkway is bowed. I wonder if Intermountain will still fix it after I've owned it for almost a year.

    FD, your bridge is a wonderful place to photograph passing trains [​IMG]

    Jeff,

    Was discussing your bridge with Flash over coffee this morning and we both agreed what a fantastic bridge. we both agreed you should put perspex (Plexiglass) around the edge of the layout just in case to prevent rollingstock going over the side.

    I've thought about a safety net. That entire edge of the layout is risky for trains. The fill just past the bridge going around the hillside has nothing between it and the edge. Plexiglass might be a good idea.

    One day they should get the prototype for this engine back together and running excursions up on the Hill Country Flyer outside Austin, Texas. The last time I saw it, it was scattered all over a field at Cedar Park. Looked like a full scale kit. The boiler was off getting rebuilt and the steam cylinder saddle was being replaced.
