    Hello Charlie

    Yes it was. Just after the bridge behind the ridge. The camera was positioned at the back looking to the right.

    Congrats mrgooch, very dramatic shot! :cool: And I agree with your sentiments regards Shamus. He sets the bar high and though I'll never get there it's a pleasure trying!

    You could publish that picture as an advertisement, with the caption..."Here's what you can do with N scale!"

    Hey mrgooch, thanks for the compliment, your photo is excellent along with the scenery. Try your next photo with the camera sat on the tracks but place a 1/2" thick book under it first. If your loco has working lights, try this. Behind the loco and out of sight place a small needle into the kadee and into the roadbed to hold the loco still. Turn up the throttle slowly and get the headlight on, then take your photo.
    Just a thought, I do that quit often.

    May I pitch a tent, and camp out for a while at the place where you took that picture? I promise not to leave any empty scotch bottles laying around. Nice shot!!
    Concerning Shamus, I concur, wholeheartedly!

    In another thread, which shall go unnamed, you mentioned Shamus and I in the same sentence. While I am honored by the mention, I still must defer to the better modeler. Shamus does set the bar.

    You can teach an old dog new tricks, I may be slow, but I am learning. The longer you can continue to raise the bar each time I manage to catch up, the happier I'll be.

    Pete my friend, I'll drink to that:D

  11. That's a very dramatic shot, mrgooch. Well done !

    I like your scenery and backdrop very much. They really work together in this picture to "set the stage" for the lokie's entrance.
