Mystic's Theme - Trains and Tracks!

by Darlene Foster February. 01, 2012 2226 views

Went out to a part of town where I thought I might see a train, and I did, but couldn't get to a good spot to take photos, so I drove on and on, until I was ahead of the train and out of town. Found a spot where there was a railroad crossing and where I could get out of the car and near the tracks to take photos! Then I waited….nothing came! Driving back I saw the train stopped, but of course not anywhere where I could get close! All these photos, of the trains, were taken from the car. On the way home I also saw a light rail train, a computer train here in the city and took that from the car too! The last is a painting that I saw at an art fair! Not a great success, for sure!

Haha...you did great trackin' down the train and getting some super shots, Darlene! I love train and track shots, but since there aren't any up here, I missed out on the theme this week. Well, there is a train ride at Santa's Workshop, but they are closed for the season ;)))

Love train shots...My grandfather was an engineer for the Rock Island railroad and use to take me to the Round House to see the trains when I was a kid.

Ha ha... well it's a great story... and if it makes things any better I was scrolling through these thinking, "Wow, she got a LOT of train photos!" Well done, especially from the car!

This is the best post I've seen on trains this week, Dar. I like that I can see one train behind the other one in #2, but I also like the signal/lights shot because it's so pristine and clear!
