I really like this seen, simple but interesting.
It's been a long time since this was taken but it has to be a favorite of mine. The loco is still downstairs in it's box but the layout is long gone. I gave it up when my wife got sick and needed full time care. After she passed on I never got back to it, so it's all still stored in their boxes along with many that never got built.
Oh! well maybe some day in the future.View attachment 60230
That is awesome, you layout looks amazing!Absolutely BEAUTIFUL photos in this thread!!!
Here are two favs from our railroad.
C&S and D&RGW power on tap at Sedalia, Colo
Days end brings with it a spectacular Rocky Mountain sunset. Colorado and Southern F3s helpers run light over frosty rails as they coast down the mountain during their return trip to Sedalia, Colo. At times the Rio Grande borrows power from the C&S pool to meet the demanding schedule in the Platte Canyon mining district.
This image was shot on our 20"x30" diorama. It has a hand painted backdrop that was illuminated with a gelled, wireless Speedlite (external flash). Two additional Speedlites and a reflector were required to complete the lighting. The headlight intensity was brought out during the long exposure. Except for the momentary blast of flash this image was shot in near dark conditions. Basically, the flash provides primary lighting and the long shutter speed "burns in" the detail lights on the locomotive.
