Here's a look at the future of railroading. Well, apparently one month into the future, anyway . . .

BTW, it isn't my purpose to call out the photog here. I just found it humorous.

PS - Yes, you have to pull up the full-size photo to see what I'm talking about. And I hope he enjoys the bump in the view count.

That was a waste of 5 minutes.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

New laptop, backspace button wasnt working. So it was actually about 4 min 55 seconds typing the post itself.

I just think it was dumb to point out something like this.
