Default BC on a boring shot...

Just like an opinion on this shot, I personally like it the way it is but to others there might be something that detracts from the image.

Y'know... I'm gonna guess that should've been PEQ.

Looking at it, I'm thinking, that would make a great shot, from the other side of my screen. Too much of the train is obscured. Most specifically, the nose of the lead engine.

There is all kinds of shots and one would fit in a show but by it's self it doesn't fit as there is to much blocking the train? Don't take a shot not getting on as bad just only not fitting what they need.

Here's one more or less from the other side. Lighting sucks for RP, especially the sky.

Off topic to the question, but what's the story with the Guelph Junction? New owner, abandonment? Why won't there ever be another passenger train?

There is just entirely too much going on in this shot. Plus the lighting sucks, the train is obstructed by some wall/arch thingy, and that kills it for me.

In a nutshell: logistical nightmare to operate. No power or water services at the Arkell storage track. Cars have to be hauled down to Guelph Junction (over 10 miles from Arkell) to be filled with water and in the winter without block heaters the diesel generators are a bear to get started. They asked the city to help out by installing the services in town where they start the excursions from (they would pay for the water and hydro, just needed help with the services installation) but city said no dice. Therefore they sold off the cars to some other interest, somewhere stateside but I'm not sure exactly, so they could concentrate on their primary business, Destiny Tours. The tracks remain the property of the Guelph Junction Railway, owned by the City of Guelph and operated by Ontario Southland. Therefore freight operations remain unaffected.

I'd much rather see a shot from this side than the other, esp. if you could get the power leading on the return move. The shot by the OP offers absolutely nothing for the viewer while the shot from the other side of the tracks at least offers a chance at a good shot.
