Mount Hood.

Mt. Hood dominates the scene at Avery, WA.
I was hoping to get a clean H2-9 here but this was all that turned up.
2905 heads up a long welded rail train that was going to be put away at Avery.
Minolta X700, 70-210, E100VS. 250@F8.
Great shot. I love Mt. Hood in the background. As for the power on the train you got the better power. I'll take the old predecessor power over H-2 C44-9W'S anyday simply because it's rarer than the ever present & boring H-2 C44-9W'S, but that's just me. Everybody has their own likes & dislikes. Imagine a beautiful Warbonnet SD75M/I set with this same scene, man I would love to see that.
