I shot Saturday both trips, Sunday morning only and Monday both trips.

This was my first exposure to this type of railfanning for my fiance and step son. We went to the O. Winston Link museum on Tuesday morning on our way out of town, and the VMT Sunday afternoon.

I had a great time as normal, enjoyed everyone's company and am looking forward to next year's trips.

Weather played havoc at times with my shots, first time using the new 6D and I could have used some more practice, but I got some good shots...
Troy, I've been watching your postings and I would say you did well in your 611 chasing. Others may have a shot or two that stands out, but your collection as a whole was probably better lit than anyone's. I would have been very pleased with a take like that.

I hope there are trips next year......

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
