Thank you all for your comments. I intend on taking many more pictures of trains. After I retire I want to do at least some of the railroads we have in Colorado. Every so often when we are on a fall "leaf-hunting" photo trip we will run across couples who are on these trips where they go from state to state to ride the rails and I think that sounds like a lot of fun. #8980709

O that does sound like an adventure...I hope you can do that once you are retired! :~) #8980768

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
