Actually, this was a "right place, right time" shot. I met the train a ouple of miles up the track, hung a U-turn, hit the gas and raced to this spot. I had about 5 minutes to get things dialed in. #4382275

Congratulations, Kai, and a long-overdue, "welcome to the club!" ;) I love that you saw this image in the first place, with that sign. I also like the distortion from the exhaust over the train, serving to show the train is in motion. #4553185
