Great shot, Walter. The color, composition, and exposure are very good. You've got strong converging lines and a vanishing point there. This is the third or fourth shot similar shot of railroad tracks that has been posted. I have one of my own that I was going to post but now I think I will save it for another challenge.

I can hear Arlo Guthrie's voice in the background wailing:

"Riding on the City of New Orleans,
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee
Rolls along past houses, farms and fields.
Passin' trains that have no names,
Freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles."

Lovely rendition of a classic vanishing point. As Cal noted we've had a surfeit of great railroad vanishing point shots.
