    What do you do when the lights in the layout room burn out?
    The light beams are actually a pair of heavyweight cars pulled by a slow doodlebug.

    Now you can se just what kind of excellent work can be done with the right tools!
    Great job!
    It looks to me like the train was parked just inside the tunnel and sat there while the photo was taken. I think?

    Because they were not stationary long enough nor bright enough to reflect enough light for the film/CCD to record their presence.

    Thanks for your comments folks!
    And regarding the train's position, it was moving at full speed- for each picture the train made 2 1/2 laps around the layout.
