Great shots, especially the flash shots and the photo of #6963 in Seattle Seahawks blue & green trim. ;)

A little off topic, but has anyone ever received complaints from train crews about getting blinded by flash shots at night? :cool: I originally posed the question in the Class I forum, but have not received any replies.

Thank Bill, I have never been called in and I have a few engineers and conductor's for friends and it does not bother them all they see is a small flash. I have six flash units and I lit up a friend of mine and he only seen one unit go off and that was the one off to the side and it sits far back from the train. Lightening strikes are a whole lot worse than the flashes. And if anyone is going to do this kind of shooting key word's "STAY OFF THE PROPERTY" that is where the problems start.

I'm kind of partial to the UP 1983 in the fog. Where is the red depot behind the Wabash unit?

I shot a train as it stopped to switch an elevator. The conductor got off and walked over. I figured he was going to complain about the flash. Instead he said they were picking up 80 some cars and if I would give him a ride to the head end when they finished, he'd park the power wherever I wanted for pictures.
