Cool Smokin'

Hey all,

Boredom got to me this morning, so I looked through my old shots here, and found one of my favorite shots because of all of the smoke the second unit was putting out. Everyone post your favorite smokescreen shot.

I don't have any real smoky shots on RP, but here's a couple ex-SP tunnelmotors smoking it up. The backlighting emphasizes the exhaust.

From my shots on RP, it would have to be this

though that is tame compared to what these locos could do before they were modified.

This has to be one of my favourite "clag" shots on RP

But, how about an electric loco smoking?

no, it is not about to catch fire, this is quite normal for these 90+ year old locos.

I'm sure that you aren't wanting steamers, so this is the best that I have.

Here's my submission. Not an RP worthy shot but pretty cool nonetheless:

Not your typical steam train smoke shot. Look closely at the plume of smoke and the powerlines "bending" into the smoke.
