Since I first posted this thread, my brother and I have gone to Fostoria and other places taking pictures. He's really into photography and has helped me learn to take pictures. Not all the shots I took have been keepers but I got some really good shots. Plan to open a Flickr account and post some there.

I make sure to get older signals in my photos, as their days are numbered.

Probably a good idea, because if you didn't include the photos, there probably wouldn't be any shots. :lol:

Glad I got a nice picture of that engine last May, as it was just recently repainted!

And now you'll have to redo that shot for a "before and after." :)

Hurry if you don't want the possibility of safetrans nearby. They put up at least one, but maybe two more masts at the west end this week. Have not gotten a closer look yet. I have not gotten any views of the east end, so there could be another one or two down there as well. We'll see, but my money is on a codeline-free Summer 2014.

On that note there are new dwarfs being installed at Plaster Creek.

Safetran dwarfs? Didn't see that coming. Was hoping for masts so it is easier to see. Oh well.
