Re: Did you go to the Link Museum in Roanoke?

O. Winston Link was an engineer, a technician, and an artist! What
a photographer!


I started my (short) day in Roanoke at the OWL museum, wandered down
to the VA Transportation museum, then back to OWL museum before
heading for home.

I spent a little time at the transportation museum, but didn't realize there was a separate OWL museum nearby. Grrrr!

1218 was at the station to celebrate 5 years of the Link museum at
the station. This sure made it easier to get good photos of the
locomotive. Mine were taken with a Xsi and the HDR files were merged
in Photomatix, then cleaned up in Photoshop.

I'm jealous. The 1218 is a beast of a machine. Would love to have seen it out in the open. I love the center shot in your gallery, it really captures the size and power of that machine (the wide angle really helps to). I thought I was told the engine is 110 feet long? When I visited, I shot with an XS and kit lens. Did a bit of faux HDR on a couple of shots, but only posted a few.
