    Nice shot. Shooting from a bridge really allows for some interesting angles.

    Thanks for the comment Greg. The sad thing is we weren't expecting it. I could have repositioned and got something else if I had been ready.

    nice light on the train. It's amazing how they've changed the station with fences since this photo was taken. Still a good place for lots of trains, just not as photogenic as it once was.
