i think this is it!

the photo was taken by mr. ron flanary.

the location is main street in la grange, kentucky.

here's my attempt at a recreation.

same location. different loco. crappy, overcast, dull day. sun was shining bright all day until i got set up and could hear the train coming.

go figure!

Remember the RP search capabilities! A simple search on the keyword 7635 would have given you what you were seeking.

The first month with my Nikon was like that... I swear there was constantly a cloud hanging just over the trains as they passed me.

Actually, it appears that locomotive is no where to be found on rp.net! I should have tried that first though. Thanks

chris--

i found the photo by using the search fields on the home page.

i searched under "csxt" and "7635".

i think the search returned only two photos.


yup! just tried it again, and it worked. only two photos!

clouds?

in san diego?

since when?

this sounds like a fishing story to me....

you need to spend the some time in "fly over country".

it's only cloudy here from late septmeber thru early may.

the rest of the year, we just have a lovely layer of humidity and haze that makes photography that much more enjoyable.
