Good shot. GLad you said what the caboose was being used for. This shot shows you can still use closeups to get good shots even when the use for the object is not the original. Do you have other train shots?

michael, this is excellent and perfectly finished! thank you.
to carl: whatever the use of the room behind the door has been made is entirely irrelevant. it's apicture of outstanding composition, so well spotted and taken, that's all that count. in case you are a collector of railroad car doors, then your pictures will look dofferent. but then they are to be categorized as dicimentary, not photography like this one. munich/germany

Carl, I will be posting the wider view of this same image, as soon as I get my desktop's HD reformated and back up to speed. I've had three crashes in two days and needed to do a complete restoration. I'm working off my notebook computer with no photo file as yet. Thanks for the comments, Charlie. JMW #5018
