Well I am glad you went! That's a very nice capture! I've spent some time recently in Weber and Echo canyons which is a main UP east/west line. I've got a lot to learn about when peak hours are. very early Saturday mornings I've had 5/6 six trains in an hour and a half. Midday -- not so much. Late afternoon seems to be busy.

Speaking of the BNSF they also can be seen here in Utah, though I seem to always miss them. James Belmont is always out and about and knows where and when to capture. This is a recent photo of his of a BNSF here in Salt Lake City: James Blemont BNFS in SLC photo

More of his photos here: James Belmont Photography

Wish I had the time and energy to be out shooting as much as he does.

As kids back in the 50/60s we used to love these wonderful fire breathing monsters. We used to sneak into the marshaling yards and climb all over them; I guess the workers turned a bit of a blind eye and made sure we didn't get into too much trouble.

I know they're dirty and smelly but what a shame they have almost vanished from the tracks.

Very nice photo, Walt!

Love all the steam and smoke! I can almost hear the whistle blowing and bell ringing! Looks like she's just leaving? Where is that? She seems to be sitting low to the ground like maybe a narrow gauge train. I know there are a number of tourist railroads that have engine no. 40, including the Nevada Northern. I like the tone of this image. Have you done some processing?
Very nice work!

Regards,

Kelly

Thanks very much. Yes, she's just pulling out of the station. It's in New Hope, PA. You can find out all about it here: New Hope & Ivyland Railroad.   It's standard gauge as far as I know. This image is fairly heavily processed, the biggest contributors being HDR and selective focus.

My word, that's nice and clean! You deserve extra points for spotting that.

Nice work from that Helios as well.

Thank you, Walt! Yes, coming back to me now. I think you or another forum member posted a photo/s of the NHRR before. Most of my photos I don't process much other than basic levels tweaking, but I do like the effect that you have achieved with this photo.

This photo "Fog" I posted before a couple years ago. This version is a bit cropped for my web side header. This is one photo where I've reduce the clarity in ACR to accentuate the fog to give it a stronger winter fog mood! But it was very foggy already. Very early in the morning shot with my Maxxum 9 and T-max 100.


Heber Valley RR engine no. 618 is also a Baldwin built 2-8-0 Consolidation as is the New Hope and Ivyland no. 40.

+1! "F8 and be there", Mark? Certainly if I had to ride the train to work everyday, I'd have my camera with me and lovin' it! Very nice!

Glassofwater,
I'm confused (nothing new there)! Samsung scanner? Or did Samsung make film? I've never seen that here. Tell us a little about the process you used. Interesting photo.
Regards,
Kelly

Thanks, I'm just glad I can zoom on the evf to check focus

aye its the first time I've been on the train for years, and I'm now gutted I put the camera away, as there was some awesome sites to be shot along the way, just a shame you can't open the carriage door windows anymore, as the mucky windows near were I was sat would have spoilt things.

I also saw a couple of big train washers over at the Hull end, and its one of the things that I've never thought is how they do keep the trains clean, just a big car wash for trains but still made me chuckle.


I'm loving the steam images Kelly and Wross, Kelly the effect really makes it look like its in a snow storm, i like it.

I'll have to get off my arse and go to York to the railway museum there.

Yes, Samsung film (the shot was taken in 2011 and the film expired in 2005 - and yeah, I've never saw film made by Samsung before, but it was SO cheap). At the time I was new to film photography so I didn't care about brand. It is a c-41 movie, but I can't give you any detail about processing time and chemicals since I sent it to a lab...

I scanned it using my a77 + 50mm 2.8 macro
