    Hello Charlie

    I know you weren't inside that building when you took that shot,so you must have placed a side of a building in front then shot through it!

    Charlie,
    That railfan is one fast photographer! All I'd have gotten would have been a clear shot of the door, and a blur in the background.
    Great shot !

    That's because the K&I local usually "ROARS BY" at a supersonic 5 or 10 mph! :D :p :D

    You're right Tyson!
    Bad track, & heavy traffic make for a 10mph restriction on the branchline. ;)

    Y'see, I followed this rabbit down his hole, &...:D

    That reminds me of a picture I took recently that's on one of the "undeveloped rolls." My wife and I got away for a weekend and stayed at a hotel in Dallas that just happened to be located next to a railroad track. (I swear that I did not know this when I booked the reservation! But as we were in town, ostensively, to attend a train show, I figured it fit in with "the plan.") As we were fixing to check out I heard a train coming down the track, so I ran to the side door and snapped a photo just as the engine disappeared behind a building. Now where is that roll of film...
