While visiting the station at Ft. Langley, I had the W B - VIA #! - come rockin and rollin through at approx 11.30 a m. This one caught me by surprise - as nothing moved at all for a long time. I put most of my stuff away and only turned and fired with the P and S - the only thing out of the bag. It does show the two paint colours of the locos - even on a showery day. This is why my shutter speed is not the best.

Great capture and exposure. This one could have been a tough one to balance the exposure on, with the lighter clouds and then the lights near the center of the frame.

Sometimes Grab Shots are the most rewarding.

My thanks for the kind words. They are much appreciated.

I worked on this doing a b/w first in HUE/SATURATION using a 24 part GREY SCALE on the side of the lead loco - MATCHING MID GREY on the SCALE to the MID GREY on the LOCO SIDE.

Then when I started to return colour - I used both HUE and SATURATION TOOLS to MATCH THE GREY COLOUR LEVEL of the LOCO SIDE as close as I could. I used a MAGNIFYING GLASS to help in this task. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
