You're all crossed up. Those SD60s are no longer Oakways, they are owned by EMD and that's why I said EX-Oakway. The GP38-2s actually are lettered EMDX, but the SD60s are not.

Actually Mike, I think you're all crossed up. He said he thinks of them as Oakways, but knows they're owned by EMD.

Unless my reading comprehension skills have gone way down, he never said that they are owned by EMD.
He merely said that when he hears EMD on the radio, he thinks of the leased GP38-2s and those aren't even lettered EMD. He also said that he thinks of the SD60s as Oakways, which is incorrect.

It took a small amount of concentration to frame up the window just right, to place the engine right and to make sure the top of the car would not block out the top of the train. Not to mention levelling. Let me know what you think of it.

Looks good, try it at 75 mph.

Someone's just sore that railroads these days have very few rivets.

When I'm talking (or thinking I guess) about a certain group of locomotives, I prefer to use the correct name. Apparently, that's not very important to you.

Well, the train was backing up, for one thing.



And I was beside a road about to crve to the right. In a 35 mile per hour posted zone. Not many places in the Carolinas where you can pace a train at 75. First up, you'd be hard pressed to find a train doing 75.

Wait. Before Mike B. weights in, the train was actually going forward. This unit was a DPU facing the opposite way that the train was going.

Also, about panning or pacing.... panning is also a video term if you want to get technical about it. It means moving the camera to the left or the right. Which is what you do when you shoot a panned still shot.

You can see the last few cars of the train in my passenger side mirror.
Thanks for clarifying that, Joe. I thought maybe what was in the mirror was actually on the road in back of you. But since you mentioned it, it does look like a train.

RP awaits a shot from a track inspector's truck of a train coming up in the rear view mirror - hopefully on the other track.

What about a shot taken from the backseat of a stopped hi-rail truck that is facing a stopped train?! The driver of the hi-rail can fake a terror filled expression!

You need to get out west ! The pic I included was westbound I-90 at 75 mph on cruise control in Montana east of Livingston. I saw this loco 3 times in 36 hours between Cheyenne, Thermopolis Wyo. and Livingston Mt.
