Overview of the left side of the yards, looking down the lifeless line. If this old water tank could talk...

Last but not least, a close-up of the locomotive's "face" shining in the afternoon sun.
 
Hope you enjoyed my half-decent photos.

I will say your pictures are not half-decent. They are superb. The clarity, poses, and detail -- these are great. Can I ask you what camera you shot them with? My wife and I are going to buy a new one.  Jim Stevens.

I agree with maps53: the detail and clarity of those shots are incredible! Excellent work, Colin! Just curious, did you get to see (or photograph) the M&E Railbus #10, M&E bobber caboose #1, or NYS&W Whitcomb Switcher #150? Here is the equipment page on the museum's website: http://www.whippanyrailwaymuseum.org/equipment.html They've got some mighty-fine looking rolling stock on display. I will definitely have to get out there and visit them someday, when they are running their special event train excursions.

Wow, thanks for the quick compliments everybody!   It really is a great little museum, especially if you live close by like I do.  
 
Jim- Thanks for the kind words. I use a Canon PowerShot A620. I really like it and it takes great photos for the price (and size!). If I were to get any camera, either Nikon or Canon would be the best brands to go with.
 
Chris- Yes...I did indeed see the railbus and the bobber caboose; however I didn't think it would be worth taking pics of. I guess I was wrong. Next time I go I'll be sure to take some photos of 'em. I was so busy enjoying 4039 in her newly fresh paint!
 
Take care guys...
 
Colin

They had her headlight lit at night a few weeks ago.
There is another shot over in the night photos thread on the photography board.

I also caught #21. You might look in the M&E thread on the Alco board.

Hey Jim,
 
Take Route 80 Eastbound to Route 287 Southbound. ( about an hour from you )
Follow that a few miles and get on Rt. 10 Eastbound.
Follow that for a couple of miles and you'll cross the Morristown & Erie Railroad at grade and the museum will be on your left. Take the next jug handle and come back Rt 10 west. The museum will now be on your right. Take the next jug handle but don't go all the way around it. The museum will be right in front of you.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Take care
 
DH
