Chesapeake & Albemarle

Chesapeake & Albemarle

The complete set of the only C&A "new scheme" HO models in existence sits on the nose of half the C&A's painted fleet.
Neat idea but the real locomotive overwhelms the models. Maybe the models on the rail with the real loco futher in the background?
Well I've got this shot:


but since it's bow-on you really dont see much on the model. It IS a challenge to shoot models on, or including the prototype. I mean they ARE 87 times smaller than the real deal.

It was a tough call between this and the first pic to enter in the contest...
