    Sun and Weeds

    Nice shot Mark. Perfect lighting. They just had contractor come and spray our yard last week. We spent most of the day moving cars around so they could hit the whole place. On the other hand, the weeds give the yard a different/ maybe a nicer look.

    Some photos of my railfanning around the East Bay 2011

    You've got a quite a nice selection of shots right here! I love the angles, composition, framing and the colors. Hope to see more from you.

    Mexico Bound CSX Units...Or Todays Mega Lashup

    Nice catches Mark. Always interesting to see that many units heading out on one train.

    Railroading Panhandle Style

    A scene that repeats multiple times during the day... a solid set of stacks rolls east in the morning sun past a typical Texas Panhandle town which consists of a grain elevator in the background and a few houses.

    This is actually a private crossing just west of the rest stop, which itself is west of Umbarger on highway 60.

    Nope trainboyh, nothing that big. :) Only a measly 200mm, which I guess on the 1.6 crop sensor of an XTi adds up a little bit.

    Horse Overshadows the Cows

    Foreign visitors on a BNSF vehicle train cast really long shadows on the cows grazing in the last light of the day. To add to the fun, the lead NS C40-9W was dead and the trailing ICE SD40-2 had to do all the work, as a result of which the train was not making good speed at all.
  11. Plenty of Old Stuff

    Plenty of Old Stuff

    Lots of stuff from fallen flags clutters this shot. The local leaving on the main has units from BN and two colors of SF. Also in the back are two even older SF units doing some switching.
  12. Side by side

    Side by side

    BNSF 4648 has just finished switching in the siding closest in the picture and is getting ready to move east on Main 2 and finish its journey in Amarillo. BNSF 5393 had no intentions of sitting and waiting as comes flying around the high speed curve at 60 mph creating a dramatic side-by-side...

    Nice shot! Looks like you've been spotted. :)

    A Texas Sunrise

    A work train is one of the first ones to leave the town as the sun starts to rise in the east on the closing crossing gates.

    Beautiful composition! Nicely done.
  16. Quiet Night

    Quiet Night

    On the eve of Hurricane Ike landfall with it being a couple of hours away from landfall in south Texas, everything is quiet in the Texas Panhandle. The passing stack train drops this signal from a clear to a restricting as it storms its own way through, completely oblivious to the storm. The...

    Hard working snake

    When the heat waves are strong enough, they can take upon an almost fluid-like appearance. That's the case with M-AMSLUB as it works hard to keep the train at 45 mph with 3 units spewing enough heat to obstruct the overpass above them.

    That's a very impressive result. The ISO performance is really clean and noise is very minimal as far as I can tell. Great shot.
