They are both great shots - love the colours in #1 and I'd print that and have it on the wall in a jiffy !

Thanks Dustin. The spot that I shoot from is literally alongside the tracks which is at a midpoint of a long curve. It sets up well for a shot of a southbound train.

Thanks FF. I just might do that and display it in my basement where I have my model RR set up.

I agree with the comments about how good #1 is - it's a real stand-out type of picture.

Thank you Mole and Harriet! Now if I can get excited about automobiles, I'd have planes, trains and automobiles covered

The bright colors on "old 5486" make it a stand out. Much more photogenic than black!

Very nice set Jelpee,

The lighting was a plus. The pigeon shot was fun.

One of the things I like best about this set is the feeling of the power of the locomotives that comes through. Really well captured... the feeling of how much strength each of the behemoths possesses.

#1 has great colours and a good angle and bet would make a great addition to your train room walls
the black one could have a tweak with curves at the dark end to bring out some detail
and i like the one coming around the bend too, thats a lot of heat coming out the top
