She's a beauty, Michele! She reminds me of a Prussian T3 with a larger water tank. Very nice photo! Where is this? In a mountainous location for sure!

It's a crossing gate. I'm leaning on it, basically. I was driving through and the gates just dropped in front of me. Got out of the car and got a shot. Sometimes you get lucky.

Yeah, below freezing and snow, I'm loving every second. Winter person here.

Oh, you bet I could. That's a classic situation that's happened to me so many times... You wait for a while (sometimes hours), decide to go home or somewhere else, and then a train sneaks up on you. Having a radio scanner helps a lot, but even then you can get screwed, haha!


Exactly. And when I'm by myself I can be patient and wait. But I guess this is generally the case with photography -- always harder to concentrate and take the necessary time to get the shot right, when you are with company. Yes my scanner helps sometimes -- occasionally catch some chatter, but most often they appear with no radio announcement. Maybe I'm just not skilled enough with using it.

My brother suggested starting a log book to get a better idea of what comes through and when. I guess I could also use exif info from the photo of others to fill in my log book -- i.e. James Belmont. The Overland Route has some 40+ trains a day. From my experience so far the peak hours are early morning and late afternoon.
