I didn't have much sun (OK, any) on my visit, so the only shot I have posted to the net of my AKMD visit is on my Flickr. But I thought y'all might enjoy a shot of the classic scheme which has been...

Thank you for the further information. That was exactly the type of situation I was figuring it was, but nice to know for certain.

Good to hear about Reynolds. When I was on the line, my time was pretty brief and I was under the impression the old Reynolds plant that is now the shop was it for Reynolds. Was what now comprises...

Circles in the sky

I really liked this shot and opened for a bigger view. Now, admittedly, I am going in for an eye check tomorrow but I am seeing circles in the sky. What would cause this? They are too uniform to...

I'd say this is a fine example of using back lighting to make a dramatic shot. The cloud interruption under the plume appears to be some very fine white steam which did not go opaque, as did the...

ASAP, indeed. I thought work was going to drag me north from Chattanooga by now, but looking more like April now as one of my projects tries to get its legs under it.

It looks like the main issue is the light is quite nosy, so that is making the side of the train difficult to get in the proper exposure and sharpness. I think your second one is better for...

Blue spot in POTW?

Anyone know what is going on along the left side of the frame? If that is some sort of natural feature, it certainly is odd looking.

I would say Progressive Rail is as good of a chance as this line has. These low-margin lines are their specialty. If they pull out, I think the next step is the county saying "Well, we tried."

I should add after reviewing a photo of SBVR 102, it is NOT a GP35 carbody. With some conversations elsewhere, we have determined it is ex CLNA 9657, which is former CSXT 9657/B&O 3806.

I appreciate that input, Doug. You're right-- sharpen the image enough to make the train look right and the sky looks like a Lite-Brite. And I have more friends using Lightroom than anything.

That's about as helpful as tossing a 50-page report back on an employee's desk and saying "This needs work."

Care to elaborate? I find the biggest issue with scans is that the compression applied...

Good point; I hadn't thought of that one. I might have enough room on the scan to loosen that up a bit, but not likely not enough to overcome the tight crop.
