In all, 2009 was a pretty good year for me. It was the first full year that I've used my Canon XSi, so I've seen a great increase in the quality of my work. Although budget limitations prevented me from going outside of day trip range this year, I managed to cover a lot of ground in my area. I spent a lot more time focusing on the more obscure operations of this region instead of spending all of my time along high traffic but relatively boring main lines. So far I have 39 images from '09 accepted here.

Here are my ten favorites sorted by date. For all the fair weather railfans out there, note that only three of these shots are taken in full sun--just proof that you don't need to have sun to get a decent photo. Although ordinary cloudy days don't do much for me, throw in some snow or fall foliage and I'm happy. The lack of sun allows for more flexibility as it permits me to shoot from angles that would not be possible in sunny conditions.
