Bad weather Christmas train

36 Degrees, Windy, Rain, Sleet & Snow

Today was our railroads Christmas Train and the weather was terrible.

Santa and The trains Mascot (Cinder Bear) did show up along with a bunch of kids.

It's supposed to be snowy at Christmas time! I love your two bad weather shots - a different view, full of atmosphere. It looks like people were having fun in spite of the weather.

I like # 6...seeing the old steam engine plow through the snow in the forested area, reminds me of the Orient Express train in the Agatha Christie novel, Murder on the Orient Express.

Excellent picture..really evokes a strong mood. Would be a good advertising picture on this railway's brochure.

Roger, Whaddya use the Pentax K10D and the Bigma ?

Les because of the bad weather I decided to try my Tamron 24-135 on my K10D. I was thinking cuz of the bad light it might work better.

Thanks for the nice comment and for looking.

I won't be so poetic as to compare #6 to Agathie Christie, but it's far and away my favorite from an excellent group of shots. The snow-covered track in front of the locomotive grabs my attention.

Very nice, Roger. I like them all.

I agree #6 is the one I like best in this series. Thanks for looking and for the kind comment about my photos.
