    Peirce.

    I don't know if you saw the pix of my new camera setup? I picked up a 100 to 400 mm Telephoto Lens. A window mount for the Explorer and a remote switch for the Camera as I am to shaky to hold the Camera steady. This will be the first Railroad Photography in nearly 18 years. I was going to start last week but the wife had the Flu.

    Art,

    Sorry to hear your wife is not feeling well. I hope she is better now.

    That camera set-up looks like you could sneak up on any loco. Seriously, it looks like you will be able to do a lot with that rig. I would suggest one additional piece of equipment, a tripod. You will probably want to take some shots away from your car.

    Also, consider this. I send my film into Kodak for processing and ask for digitizing at the same time. I generally get diskettes.

    We all will be eagerly waiting to see the results of your grand return. Is there any better combination of hobbies than railfanning and photography?

    Cheers!

    I have a very nice tripod but with my back injury I am limited to walking about 25 yards. I like your album especially the old Explosive Car. With the long lens and window mount I figure that I can get the good photos as I know where to go from working on the Railroad.

    Go for it, Art. Judging from your earlier pictures, you will do very well.
