    Thanks, everyone, I am humbled. That shot was one of thousands taken by a group of us at one of Martin Hansen's photographer specials at the Sumpter Valley narrow gauge in May. The main purpose was to get some shots of SV No. 19, as she was due to go into the 1472 day/15 year Form 4 rebuild. She will be out of service for a while. A very attractive little ALCO product. I saw her back in 1996 when she was fresh out of overhaul by Doyle McCormack, at the 100th anniversary of Portland Union Station. They had a short section of snap track set up to run her on back then, and wow, all of a sudden she's due again. Anyway, Sumpter Valley is a very scenic place as is obvious in that photo. I love it over there. :tb-biggrin:
