B&W Train / Rail close-ups
Challenge has finished
Let's jump back a few decades and recreate the feel of the old steam era. We'd like to see close-ups of train engines (steam or otherwise), cars, tracks, and other rail-related machinery, in B&W, monochrome, or duotone. The emphasis is on the CLOSE-UPS, so no landscape views of a 1 mile-long train, large stations, etc. will be accepted.

|Notes:||This is one of the rare moments when with camera and lens protected from the rain, I was getting soaked myself...hand holding the camera. No tripod. A magical moment.|
