DOTX # 220 FRA

The Empire Builder # 7 with a FRA DOTX # 220 inpection car/DOTX #221 coach car Office of Safety/and BNSF # 7 Sante Fe coach platform car.Stopped at Edmonds Wa. Amtrak station S/B for Seattle Wa.
Excellent use of wedge shot to convey a sense of being there at the time train was at station. Looks as though you were using a digital camera of perhaps Nikon brand. Well done. Am looking for a photo of an ex-Pennsylvania observation car. Have you seen one of those (maybe only one in existance)?
I especially enjoyed to rating of 10 that Steve Rich Bell assigned to the photo. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of depth of field meaning that the lettering at front of this car is not entirely legible. All details towards end of car ( closest to camera) seems fine+. Sorry that the clarity is not total.
