Re: NS Peavine talk

Your old skills are up to par. Man CCET seems to buy all their power off the dead line.

Read about that the other day. Seems the good folks at INSIDE Edition don't know a brake from a break.

Re: NKP 757 on the move

Thanks for the posted videos. I missed being there for 757's return. I did get up there a few weeks ago to see it. What a machine. I'll share a few snaps with you. https://photos.smugmug.com/Trains-oh-trains/i-JtdqKhg/0/d65c9c50/L/eDSCF0123%20copy-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Trains-oh-trains/i-...

Re: NKP 757 on the move

Man that looks good rolling along even dead in tow. Could you let us know if it is stored in a place were it will be view able in Bellevue? At a distance would be fine. I think I'll head that way on Saturday.

Re: Photo Critiques

Could you post the original for comparison...or at least one with all of your edits up to but excluding color correction? Still looks a little bit too overbaked to me. If by overbaked you mean the exposure is too much, then I'm not sure what to tell you. I didn't mess with the exposure settings on ...

Re: "What kind of..." Season 2: What kind of tripod?

So now that I have my new camera, and have taken a few nice pictures with it, I'm (almost) ready to try something that has interested me for a long time: long-exposure shots. Only issue is, I do not have a tripod. Is there any that you all would recommend that is a durable and long-lasting product?...

Mr. Jacobson, 74, died on Wednesday at 9...

Re: Picture hosting

Flickr is free as Photobucket once was. Don't be surprised when free becomes pay. I use smugmug, it's not free, but it's cheap & does a good job for me.

Re: Fostoria OH 8/20/2017

The CSX depot is on S. Main St. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.1530004,-83.4107275,16.91z I'm not sure who donated the land that the rail park sits on. If it was CSX it could have been a requirement to put the viewing platform where it is away from the CSX tracks. Although I have no idea, just a wi...

Nice Flickr album StupidFleet. I'll add my .02 here. By all means do go to Deshler. I've only been there a couple of times, but there is always a train coming through. How many a day I have no idea, I'm the kind of person who shoots a couple of trains & then moves onto another place. For me chasing ...
