Ned,

Thanks for viewing and the comment. Yes, personally I want to drive, sail, fly, manage them all, by myself; can't really stand the idea of being a passenger. A suitable case for treatment perhaps

Torgny

Would like to ....... this one too

Torgny--you are spoiling me with all these train images. Is the last image one of a train moving, or standing still. To me it looks like it is in motion--perhaps the way the snow has laid on the top ridges of the engine.

In case you had not seen it, here is a link to some images from my model train layout. http://forums.steves-digicams.com/transportation/166909-trains-my-basement-4-images.html

I've never tried photographing trains in the winter--you have inspired me to do just that.

Jehan,

"perhaps the way the snow has laid on the top ridges of the engine"

Yes, the train was standing still. By the way, I passed the area yet another time, today, and got very surprised.

The black train that I have admired for a long time was moving and had an endless row of wagons behind it. Out of the car and ...

Well, I'll post a couple of pictures when edited

Remember, as a younger boy than I am now, there were two camps, the Märklin camp and the Fleischman camp. Suppose you know about them

Like your pictures of miniature trains and landscape. Must be very destressing

Torgny

Nice ones Torgny, great colors.
The last right locomotive reads: HECTOR RAIL. Hector is a clasic name. Curious.

Thanks Torgny. Re. the destressing part, running the trains actually is--I feel like a kid all over again. However, I stress about making the landscaping perfect and it is has been the biggest obstacle to finishing the layout. Unfortunately, I am devoid of artistic talent to envision and create on my own. Therefore, I rely highly on detailed instructions. I know I can get help from the local model RR club...but honestly speaking most of the members are fanatical about it and I can't seem to relate to that amount of passion. This is just a hobby for me and not all consuming. Now photography....that's another story
