Posing on a timber trestle, Mt Rainier Scenic Railroad's Rayonier Willamette #2 shows off the results of her just completed restoration. The engine has just finished a press run and after unloading the passenger it was posed for photos.

This shot shows the engine in its "native habitat", in the woods and on a timber trestle.
Thanks! Since they were posing her for photos, I was able to spot the engine where I wanted it, and was trying to get light on the pistons and drive shaft and light up the usually dark spots.
Editor's choice? Cool! (No, I didn't pick my own photo...)

Meanwhile, Railpitchers rejected this shot. LOL!
