Love your D&S set of images, Kelly - outstanding (and somehow "out of time")!

TFS!

Thanks Harald! It really is like stepping back in time. It was very exciting for a steam locomotive fan. It was the first time I've actually seen a turntable in action. It was a very busy little train station while we were there. I understand the ride up to Silverton is very scenic, but can be an all day trip. I'd like to do that someday.

The Silverton trip is totally worth it!! I went back in the 90s. On another note, Big Boy is coming through here tomorrow and I'm going to scout locations today!

Big Boy is in Arkansas already? Super. Hope you can get some good photos to share with us. Probably be difficult to find a location without a lot of railfans and where the angle of the sun is good. Any location easily accessible by road will have a lot of fans. If you find a spot where it is moving fast, keep your shutter speed at a minimum of 1/500 or faster. It will have an extra tender and a Diesel assist locomotive as well as a long string of vintage yellow Union Pacific passenger cars. Always good to try to not cut off part of the train. I like a focal length of 35mm to 50mm. If there are a lot of fans a telephoto will help keep them out of the shot, i.e. a 70-200mm while the train is still at distance. To get the whole train you need to be at a narrow angle to the train, but of course don't get too close to the tracks, stay at a safe distance or overhead on a bridge or hill. Keep in mind that this will be a first -- a Big Boy in Arkansas! They only steamed between Cheyenne Wyoming and Ogden Utah originally. They were built to pull heavy freight over the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains, specifically, the Wasatch range and Sherman Hill.

Kind regards,

Kelly

My pleasure Kelly, this thread allows me to see all kind of trains from all over the world, that's indeed priceless. I've see very few US steam trains, even though I have visited the steam train in Flemington NJ in 1974 and seen the Grand Canyon Steam train in 1994. But I'll have to scan some colour slides (from non-minolta cameras) to show them here.


But your remark about engines on turntables inspired me to go back to some "sleepers" on my hard drive from 2009, the "Staatsspoorwegen" 657 on the turntable in Haaksbergen. In the meantime this little engine is completely overhauled and is now "Nederlandse Spoorwegen" 8107 and in a much darker green livery. The latter is from after the merger of several smaller railroad companies into one national railroad company of the Netherlands. Here you can see how she looks now, I haven't seen her myself yet in this new dress.

But here's two on the "armstrong" turntable slightly more than 10 years ago:






Both A700 + Sony 18-250
