The locomotive approaching on the left illuminates the passengers waiting on the platform.
In the distance, the local powers up the grade as it leaves town.

Managed to finish a couple of new cars this week and have worked on some cars of the namesake railroad!
Branchline 50' Berwick Boxcar Kit, with Diagonal Panel Roof in place of the X-Panel Roof that came with the kit, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red, Reefer Orange and Aluminum, then lettered with Highball Graphics Decals.
Used a Walthers PS2 4427 Kit, as a standin for a Bethlehem Covered Hopper, added a Plano Roofwalk, then painted with Scalecoat II MofW Gray and lettered with Islington Station Products Decals.
Thanks for looking!
Got a new DSLR with video capability.
The boy next door.....with binoculars
I went to the local Great Train Expo last Sunday.
OK, do I (the viewer) have the binoculars, or have you so skillfully hidden the boy in the tree that he is virtually invisible? A tip o' the hat for your lovely scene.
A boy using binoculars to spy on his lovely girl neighbor is only doing what comes naturally... like a horse pooping in the middle of the street. You can't blame either for doing it.
Superb scene, as always, Candy. A miniature snapshot of domestic life in simpler times. I look at your scenes and it gets me daydreaming.
And I like your motive power roster, montanan!
I could never afford binoculars.
You must look closer.
I could swear those lens reflections just magically appeared. Maybe he hides every now and then.

I suppose not. Maybe I should pull the shade when I'm in the shower? ....nah I wouldn't bother
He is tricky
Great lighting !!!!
Wow, they start young don't they
*Sigh*. I wish we still had these beauties to enjoy watching as they'd roll by.
Gotcha, twin pinpoints of light.....sneaky.
