Just my favorite, taken from Amtrak in Helper, UT, in 1993 (or so) it was an "(explative deleted)" and a lunge for the Canon 630, thru the window, on the fly..

The above photo, at the "Y" at Helper,Ut was originally a 4x6 print, scanned to a jpg with a flatbed scanner.  As the poles indicate, it was taken with a very long lens, and I am sure the lens as well as the Amtrk windows was dirty.  I had about 20 seconds to see the shot, locate the &^%^ camera, compose, focus and shoot..   Amtrack always runs fast when there is sumpin to photo...

Wow, nice shot Mike. Here's my new favorite after some cropping (cheat, cheat). I wouldn't modify colors or change the shot to black and white, I only crop.

Great work! I think I'd crop the side view mirror but a very good shot and a good shot to work with...
 
I just tried it and you can still keep the whole lamp post in as well as most of the street. It is a very good shot!

I've never been to the car show. I don't like to be by RR tracks wen you can't get a good shot because I was walking into the Railroaders Memorial Museum and an Espee GP38 went by. If I knew it was coming I would have taken a shot but I thought it was another junk NS Dash 9.

This one is a personal favorite.  
 
Tam and I met up with Jon and Carrie in Berea late on a February Sunday
afternoon in 2002 for some trains and chatter at the depot restaurant.  
 
I managed to get one usable CSX shot before the light was totally gone. I  
still had to edit out some lens flare, but the result wasn't too shabby. Not  
bad for a 1/8 sec action shot exposure. It was the last shot of the day for  
me, not because of the light, but because the cold killed the battery and the  
spare was dead too  
 
 
AC44's 314 and 248 lead loaded coal train V806-06 off the Indianapolis Line  
(Big Four) onto the Short Line (CSL) at CP 22 in Berea under quickly
fading light.  
 
V806 ran coal from Elk Run, WV to the Levett Generating Station at Tomkins  
Cove, NY.  
 
AC44's 409 and 411 handled the train from Elk Run to Russell, KY where they  
then picked up N914-09 for Grand Rapids, MI and the 314 and 248 took over on  
V806-06.

Has anybody noticed that last set of tracks (far right) in Henry's photo above?  I think I 've seen the MOW crew that put those down!
