Default The other side of the lens

Did you ever wonder what you look like to all of those train crews out ther, as we stand trackside and shoot? A friend of mine recently sent me a shot of Kathy and myelf out shooting in Indiana...kinda neat to see it from this persepective

That's actually a neat photo on its own. It's nice to see the other side. I always try to wave at the crew either before or after the photo, and usually get a wave in return.

So what was yours and your wife's view of this event? Did those photos wind up on RP?

Cool deal. I think it's an interesting look to have both views at the same time.

Guilford's got a point. I hope you caught the one behind you or did it get blocked by the first train?

BTW..... UK looking good for #1 this week.

The train behind was NS 114, and was stopped of the crossings until the pushers (what we where shooting) got into the clear on double track. I saw a chance for a neat shot and got 114's lead motor, a old SD40-2, passing the new whiteface catfish on the pushers..

Neat shot. Where in Indiana was that taken, and are those the pushers to get trains up the hill to Georgetown?

Interesting shot of the veteran unit next to the newbie. Brings up an interesting question though. One is does anyone think that 3204 will get repainted in the new NS paint? And if it does how would you apply the white face paint to a high hood unit? Also has anyone seen any of the high hood units with a white face?
