A sundown picture i want to get someday occurs every year over an empty track in Hanlontown , Iowa.
It is during Sundown Days in early June to celebrate the sun setting directly over the Union Pacific ex CNW line to Fairmont, Minnesota.
I grew up 20 miles from there but of course it took moving away to realize there was such a thing. :D

Train Loving Pilot
Hey everyone, just discovered your forum a few days ago and have been reading and lurking for hours on end since. I am a very amateur photographer but an All-Pro train lover. I was bit by the bug since birth and still have to watch a train as it goes by to this day.

The following is some foreign railfanning from St. Souplet, France taken this May. A very little used track leading to a factory that I think was shut down. There is a unit sitting there but I don't think it's moved in years as the track and crossing guards were worn and very overgrown.

Just outside of New Orleans,

Cool stuff Rail Ohio.

I take track photos as well because what you think that is here today will be there forever might not. It's a refreshing break from the same old generic 3/4 wedge shots over and over.
