Lots of nice pic's here.  I love experimenting with camera setting to get a good night shot.  It's a lot harder than I thought and I've been messing up night shots for years especially when we had film in our camera's.  Now with digital, no wasted prints..  Just thought I'd throw one up on the site here.  The city scene was taken with a Canon SX50HS with manual settings, on a tripod, NO flash, ISO 80, F stop 6.3, Aperture 4 and exposure time of 15 seconds.  The only lighting used are a series of blue flood lights mounted permanently to make the night scene more realistic when I'm running trains and also to give me some type of light in the room   The city is a 10 foot section on a riser of all H.O. buildings on the layout for depth perception.  The engine is a repainted, reworked Lionel working its way thru the switches back to the engine facility after a hard days work.IMG_0711

 Hey Lary',  This is a great shot!! We need to see some more of this good looking layout'... I like the idea of the HO structures in the background'... That works very well for false perspective'... You have mastered night photography from what I'm seeing here.  So, let;s see some additional material'.....πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜β—πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ“Έ

Actually I have way too many pic's to post on this site.  Been working on trying to compose a feature article for the mag. but way too busy here in MI. even with the stay at home orders.  This is my turkey hunting time as well as fishing and getting the garden in and also I'm a very avid bicyclist who will pump out 20-30 miles on a given day.  The trains are kind of pushed in the back corner of my mind for the summer months but I do take a project or 2 up to our cabin in Northern Mi. to work on when I can find time and get my butt off the boat.  Winter time I'll lock myself in the train room for hours on end but summer, NO way.

OK one more taken in the just finished section near the town of Essential, all O scale buildingsIMG_7041

Night shift at The Indian Motorcycle plant while at the fuel depot they are working late trying to keep up with deliveries and company maintenance. The coal tower is always busy day and night.

The B&A 0-8-0 is delivering much welcomed parts for the Indian plant while lead man Gary is checking out the wallpaper.
