  1. Thanks mile27, I used to shoot a lot in b&w when I had a darkroom. Not so much now though, digital is too easy!

  2. Very nice, Tony. Looking good in b&w.

  3. As a railroader and enthusiast, these types of shots are always my favourite. Not only are they a time capsule of years gone by, but they highlight the too-often overlooked ‘human’ side of railroading. And the comment about the toilet, from the outside, that wouldn’t be something you think about… but on the inside those few creature comforts make or break your day sometimes. Fantastic shot.

  4. This is a great capture. Glad you were able to get this Tony.
