QR National 5BM7

G516, a JT26C-2SS in QRN colours leads a CLF (an AT26C-2M in ARG or G&W colours) and a CLP (AT26HC-2M in QRN paint) toward Hawkesbury River Station on 20 February 2009. The train is a Brisbane to Melbourne intermodal, aka a Superfreighter.
Keep it coming always love the Aussie content. To my eye the shot looks like you used a point and shoot camera. EXIF shows a 1Dmk2. Not sure what is going on with your processing.

Appreciate your comments. I was using the 24-105 f4L lens at the time, which results in you seeing a 100% crop (and not from centre of frame). That yellow front looks patchy because it is, well, patchy. With the train where it is, I would be better off with with a bigger lens. I'll upload a shot with the train closer, would appreciate comment.
