    It's things like this that make me want to get out in 15F temps! The first pull of the day as the rising sun starts cutting thru the haze, with driving wheels slipping on frosted rails.

    Thanks Nick, I'm getting there. Knees still hurt and neck is still sore but these opportunities only come a few weeks per year so I suck it up and shoot. Temps that low are rare this time of year plus they only run in the mornings on weekends. Thankfully, I spent the better part of 18 hours there between Sat and Sunday and didn't fall nor break any gear!
  4. I just love how the engine is emerging from the steam and clouds. I like that characteristic so much that I wonder if I can convince you to get rid of the small amount of greenery on the left side so that aspect of the emergence is complete.

    Thanks for all the kind words. I think what I like about this is the contrast between the warm toned softness of the steam and smoke and the coldness of the hard metal of the locomotive.
