From the Cumbres & Toltek line from Chama, New Mexico to Antonio, Colorado, USA. Old narrow gauge line originally used mostly for mining, now a tourist ride.

pegelli, give me a call if you visit North Wales. One overlooked line is the Llanberis Lake Railway, some nice shots are possible from across the lake with a long lens:

and there are still some possibilities on the main line. Here's the autumn "leaf-buster" train passing through Bangor station:

My first posting in one of these themed views, hope it's up to snuff...

A shot of the Alaska Railroad in Seward, Alaska last Spring.

The colours are wonderful. But if you want me to be picky then
1) The bit of tree trunk on the left is a little distracting
2) The coach looks interesting, I'd have liked to have seen more of it.
Looking down the track for more of a head on shot would have fixed these, but you'd have lost the snowy mountain on the left, so perhaps you got the optimum shot in the circumstances.

Thanks for the feedback! I've done a little touch-up to remove the tree and the power lines (and updated the original post). Better?
Regarding getting more of the train - I do have a couple of other shots that capture more of the cars, but the clutter around the tracks just overwhelms the train itself.

JohnnyW - We didn't actually take a ride on it, but I saw it (or similar) several times on our trip. This was the only good opportunity I had to get a shot of it.

Thanks again for feedback!

Once more a picture of a Swiss narrow gauge train coming out of the woods on its way to St.Moritz from Pontresina:



and this is now a neighbour of the other railroad thread.

Is it necessary to suggest that this thread could well be combined with the other railroad thread?
