Are you suggesting that the photos you posted are more scenic than this;

You posted three wedgies (albeit technically sound) and one creative shot. I do like the first one, but of all the shots I've seen from this weekend, that is by far the most scenic. Like by a factor of 5x. This lack of scenic photos is not a knock against the ability of the photographers who chased the 611, but rather a shortcoming of the line it was running on. Hence why I said in my original post;

Of course this is the closest to me. I've scouted the B-line a few times and I think it may be the least photogenic line outside of some place like Kansas. Only thing of any interest is the station in Manassas.
