I saw that Tim was on earlier today, but didn't post a topic. If it's OK with him, I guess I'll start this week.
On Sunday, I dug out the Finepix 2500 from the early 2000s that my dad handed down to me when I was 12 and headed trackside. It was really, REALLY nice to finally be using a camera with a real zoom lens again!
Eastbound empty coke train 915 or 921 thunders through the crossing at Haysville. The one downside to using this camera is that in Auto mode the light meter makes the photo appear washed out, in my opinion. I'll have to go back through the manual and learn how to use the manual mode.
A westbound manifest passes under the PRR-era bridge at Milepost 10.8 on the Fort Wayne Line just east of Haysville.
A smoky eastbound local heads under the bridge. This shot is why I love having a real zoom lens.
The tail end of a westbound clears 10.8 as eastbound 10N is stopped just beyond the signal at the defect detector. It sounded like a flat spot to me, but I had no scanner to confirm.
