Rail buff.
Here's a few snaps from Labor Day Sunday at Carkeek Park. I'm no pro, but I think I caught some great shots. And the tail-on Warbonnet (it was the DPU) shot is definitely the best train photo I've ever taken. Three trains in like a half hour, good stuff! I apologize if they seem out of order, they are. Didn't feel like taking the time to figure out how to get them in order.

By the way, I did not intentionally take the photo of the woman in the bikini, I really was just focusing on the Builder - but maybe Amtrak will get a ridership boost from it?!

Good shots, thanks for posting. Next time focus on the woman in the bikini and shoot at f/16 to get both her and the Builder in focus. ;)
