Default Bad crop

What do you think? I see it well, but maybe less crop on the left high corner?

Might be too tight. Can you go a bit wider all around to show more of the scene?

Looks good to me, the shot is about the two trains not the surroundings. Maybe its too square, but then again the helicopter shot from the other thread got in...
Off topic: Will the new Chinese units be replacing the RSD16's? Sure hope not.

As Jim stated, maybe a little tight. Perhaps go a little wider on the right ( not cutting off that engine over there ) and also adding some to the top ( not cutting off the tops of the buildings/houses).

The plan is for all trains to go over to chinese engines. I'm guessing some of the more recent EMD engines might linger on but thats it for RSD16s on passenger I think....

Thanks guys for your tips, I have another shots, but I like this detail shot of the crossing trains.

Nikos: For now, the actual locomotives (EMD and ALCo) will be transferred to other lines to reinforce them, including the RSD16. But the time (and the execituves, jaja) will decide.

Thanks again!

It's a matter of personal preference. I like the shot okay, but the screener probably didn't light such a tight crop. A close tele shot remains an acquired taste for many.

That sucks about the ALCO's, those were refurbished fairly recently I thought? I know some of the G26's were just recently purchased from Croatia, both are much more interesting than these Chinese units.

Also this is pretty lame, almost the exact same shot as yours and it gets accepted.

Juan - I've only just noticed this was passing a Castelar to Once "differencial" train. How come it was on that line rather than on the LSM? Thanks.

Nikos - I suspect the RSD16s might find their way into freight use with ALL or other companies. It'll be interesting to see if any smaller passenger companies decide to pick them up, especially with LSM being a government sponsored operation.

Nothing lame about it. You know why it got accepted? That "almost" is the wider crop we were suggesting.

Hi Mark!

The consist belongs to San Martín Railway but the stuff move have to ride the Sarmiento rails from Once Tunnel to Haedo, where later will take the transfer branch line to Caseros (LSM).

Respect to the future of the actual LSM rolling stock, specially the ALCo's, the actual idea it's to transfer the EMD locomotives (GT22, J26 and G26) to the Gral Roca line. and the ALCos i'm afraid the future it's dark. Some versions indicates that they'll be scrapped, but another ones say that they'll be transferred to freight companies. All that remains is to wait.

Nikos, the LSM ALCos passed a mayor intervention (or General Repair at 900.000km) between 2007 and 2012, the last one was the unit B820. A little curiosity, the unit B814 is estimated to have about 17.000.000km (or 10.625.000 miles) from 1959 to 2013. AMAZING just AMAZING.


Cheers!
