Yes, I like trains, but, . . .

. . . only if they park in Chama, New Mexico, preferably in an autumn setting.

I can at least drive there and watch the schenery.

And, yes, the foliage is hitting its peak.

Science has advances in store for those beyond the Class of '69. However, you have me all wrong.

If you leave Abiquiu for Chama, you might get this view,

or, if you go by way of Taos, you might get a similar view.

I'm waiting for the train carrying honey "mooners." (Crazy dictionary wants me to print "moaners.") I saw it in a movie; box car full of people moaning as they went by.

And, yes, my sciatica is no laughing matter. I am not blaming the pandemic on that.

Don't you just miss another trip to the Silverton area?

Thank you for rigging the "Weekly, . . ." and "Mini-challenge."

Re: Do you like Trains? = Yes.

I like trains but don't like competitions so I'll expand into this thread......

Rail transport museum day at Central Station in Sydney Australia in 2019. The 2020 day was cancelled of course.

You wanted some steam? ......

Restored 60 class Garrat articulated loco, a small cousin of the Big Boy. Used for heavy freight trains in its day.

A bit less steam.......

A neat 36 class loco that would have hauled me as a young kid on holidays to my Aunt's place in the country.

Not steaming.......

Another loco sitting at the old mortuary station near the main station, it used to be used to ferry the dead and mourners to a big cemetery in Sydney.

Queues to look into cab......

That neat class 36 loco again.

Here I grabbed some from my RX100M6, used the jpegs resized down and slightly tickled with FastStone Viewer. The ones from the raw files looked quite a lot better but that's all on another computer that's rather busy at the moment.

The small images here of course look rubbish due to DPReview's way of handling images. May look better at full size here of 1500 wide in the gallery. The real full resolution ones are rather good but that's for me at home only. The RX100M6 does a darn good job, my M4/3 kit does a little better but usually not surprisingly better.

I might get busy one day and build the Trains folder here in the gallery for an easy way to store some train shots I like from over many years.

Thanks for the thread, Bill, I may search and indulge more later with older shots from non Sony cameras.

I want to say "sorry," but, I'll settle for "Safe!"  On first, if not a HomeRun.

If you hadn't rung me up, I'd still be nursing my "yaya."  Maybe I have carpal.  But, I think it has a lot more to do with lifting a heavy couch; one end at a time.  Then, this past Friday, I went dancing with a shovel.  Yesterday, I went to where I captured the yoga scene.  I laid my "sarape" weaving on the ground and I did the few exercises that I surfed on the web, on the quick.

My fingers had a fun time until I tried the scene.  In the extreme, the pain kept me from noticing improvement, yet, this morning I could move!  So, I did the dishes; have yet to try the broom.  On the way to feed puppy, I touched the shovel.  Puppy took off like a shot.  He wants me for pals something fierce.  That's as far as I got.  If it wasn't for that I paid sixty dollars for the tool, years ago, I would have thrown it away.

I came back in to hurl a few curves at the other forums.  It was gonna get interesting, but, I can't hardly laugh and hurt at the same time, so, I'm just gonna get up and try some meditation (transcendental, I think.). I'm learning this as I go; OK?

"You may have to leave me behind; save yourself."  (Not my words.  Saw them in a movie yesterday.  First movie I sit/lay/roll/standonhead and watch in a long time.  War movie; of course.)

If I sharpen that shovel again, it'll turn into a hoe.

Later

David

Yes. I was aware of him from years back. Big setups, multiple flashes at night, that sort of thing. Very impressive results.

Steam trains certainly look and sound better than diesels, plus as you get near them they feel "alive" due to the radiated heat. Nice on a winter's day.

Steam!

Memories...thanks Bill.

As a young lad one of our neighbours was a stoker on a Frigate in Halifax.

He took his son and I to the railyard.  The 3 of us got to ride in the cabs of every moving locomotive that day!

Then we went to the Frigate and had a tour there too.

Beautiful day.

I love steam!

Thanks for posting these.
