Joe, that is crazy.

I don't know what is worse:

Someone selling your stuff without your permission.

Or that your stuff is in an antique store. :-)

Great shot and exactly the type to be shared even if you do not technically own it.

If you make the merest effort, you can find cutting-edge rail photography here.

Great photo!

Notice how an image must be reality-based for you to relate to it?

Why?

Is it not possible to simply say "Wow, I like that, I don't care how it was made!"
