589 Departing Fullerton

Amtak train 589 departs Fullerton for Los Angeles after making it scheduled stop. The brakes were airing when I was setting up for this shot. I like the result.
I'm a fan of night work to start with but the slight bit of motion really sets this shot off. The train is moving but the trees and guy on the platform are still.
Pat, Thank you for the kind comment. I was worried at first when I heard the air for the brakes, but was pleased that I was able to capture enought of an impression of the train before it began to move. A successful accident.
