    Just sharing...

    It's a Tyco kit I picked up at a trade show for 5 bucks. Very fun to build, because the instructions were missing!

    I felt it needed to be higher so I added a foundation.

    Very impressive, congratulations EngineerKyle.
    I like the weathering and ... the missing tiles.
    Is it a diorama, or will you add that section to your layout ?

    No, it sits on the layout... in fact, the picture with the lights on are as it sits by the tracks.


    I think those lumber stacks are from Atlas. Somebody was selling them at the GV train Show in little zip lock bags for .50 a set. I cleaner her out of them.

    Great looking scene,Kyle. :thumb: :thumb: How did you manage to make the multiple exposures in your second shot? That's a technique that I sometimes used with a film camera, but I don't think that my digital camera has that capability.

    Maybe your camera DOES have the capability. Mine's a Canon A540 and has a manual mode. I use the manual mode often for low light scenes. This means I can still approach the depth of field needed and get some rich colors and glowing interior lights.

    The shudder is typically open for 5 seconds or more, and I put the camera on a tripod.

    For the shot you speak of, I tripped the shutter, (the camera has a delay so you won't get a shake when snapping it ) as the train was idle. After a second or two, I ran the train about six inches, and stopped it. Then the shutter closed.

    I like the results too, but it is so much trial and error! Here is another shot with similar results;

    It's a timed exposure, not a double exposure. And I have the same conundrum. Double exposure was easy with the film camera (Konica) but not with digital (Canon). I think the only way to do it with digital is to Photoshop the two images together after the fact. Not quite as "magical" :( ;)

    The timed (long) exposure is doable with most digitals that have more than just a point and shoot capability as Kyle described above.

    You're probably right that my camera can duplicate that. I thought that it was a true multiple exposure, where you photograph sometimes unrelated scenes on the same frame. :) Nice effect, nevertheless.:thumb:
