Entry #1 from aquaroid

I hope a train station and trains are ok for the Challenge?

If it is so, that would the Central Train Station of Frankfurt in Germany. It has only 26 tracks according to Wikipedia.

Re: Entry #1 from aquaroid

Great! Thanks Bill.

I was impressed by the Central Station. It is huge but flawlessly functioning.

His photos are great, but his setup is something from another galaxy!

Re: A great Train Book I have (O. Winston Link)

I was trying to figure out the music in the video while it was playing Dream, Dream, Dream. I knew it was familiar, then felt stupid that the credits told me Leo Kotke before I could tell myself.

Crazy old man! Slow down. You are way too old to be
hunting hemi's in that 66GTO.

Re: Entries #2 and #3 from aquaroid

Yes, I use it, still. Not often, not everyday or even every month. But sometimes it is the best machine for the task. Like when it is -25C outside I would never risk my other cameras with mechanic shutter. R1 with its electronic shutter makes a perfect job. And no risk if you to follow some simple rules.

And LOVE the colors from R1. They are special.

Exhibit - Lartigue monorail engine
1

Lartigue monorail engine replica, not steam but modern diesel-hydraulic copy in the shape of the original steamer. At Listowel, Ireland. http://www.lartiguemonorail.com/

A nice place to visit, personal tour from the volunteer chief engineer on the project, seen in blue in the cab. And yes, the original did have that size lamp back in its final years.

Regards.... Guy
