Default D&H's ex-RDG GP39s

A shot I always liked a bit. Not gonna make it here, though.

Interesting locomotives, GP39s. Not many of them in the world. The Reading had a good chunk of them and the D&H got them when Conrail started. The green with nose chevrons looked good on them.

Fond memories of the ex-C&O GP39's and the ex-RGD/D&H/Guilford GP39-2's working around Pittsburgh on CSX in the early 90's. They had a very unique sound unlike any other EMD. Neat little engines!

Oops. You caught me. They were Dash 2's. I had forgotten. Should have picked it up from the unit number. The 7400s were built in 1974 and the 7600s in 1976....

Thanks. The lighting is part of what I like about the shot, but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea.

That's a killer shot, just like most of your other stuff on here. Do you have a Flickr account? Flickr is a GREAT place to share photo's of any genre!

Flickr is great, period. The railfan photography membership is burgeoning there too. Think the Danneman's stuff is great? You haven't seen anything till you check their flickr.

Railpics still has it's place though.

Holding back? It's all right there, not their fault everyone isn't on the Flickr bandwagon

I strongly echo all the comments above referring to a Flickr.

There is some great stuff on there you can find that might not even be thought of being brought around here.

I know that there is flickr, and I have shots on flickr (a mix of sub-RP and not-RP-type shots), but how does one wade through the volume to get to the good stuff?

I would appreciate any pointers to individuals/groups on flickr that are particularly noteworthy, especially for fare not matching RP style. I know about the Beyond The Wedge group.

I think you have to narrow it down to your particular interests. I'm a fan of older, midwest stuff, so I have found some guys that fit that niche. Otherwise, there are just too many guys out there. Mike Danneman is so good you will look at any of his stuff. familymansystem, travis dewitz, heilman are good enough for any interest.

if you are interested in old midwest stuff, this guy is great: http://www.flickr.com/photos/5632/

Drew Halverson has some great stuff: http://www.flickr.com/photos/drewhalv/

I also highly recommend Mark LLanuza's photostream....he as a lot of Chicago area stuff, but also has some GREAT "Before and After" photos too.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/7547061@N02/

Oh, and Mark Mautner's stuff is great as well, for good measure.

Flickr is all about the community that you yourself make with contacts, honestly I do not find that much substandard stuff on their, if you are serious about your stuff then you have a flickr pro account and clueless people won't normally pay for anything.

To add to Drew Halverson, and Tom Danneman who both work for Trains we can also add Trains new assistant editor Brian Schmidt http://www.flickr.com/photos/railohio/


Some other favorites of mine

Flickr is only what you make it and the possibilities are endless. It's your own vision, not someone else's vision spoon fed to you telling you what is good.

Those look good. Join some train related groups on flickr and add them to the group photos. After a while people will start noticing your stuff and you will gain some "contacts."
