What type of ballast is that? It gives such a "white" appearance. I use that color ballast on my model railroad.

Well, I guess I have a new favorite photo.  This train chase pic, running side-by-side with NS power near Elkton Virginia currently tops my list.  
 
Right after this was taken we broke our right front axle joint and spent the next day cultivating a "Pep Boys tan" in Harrisonburg.

I don't know if you would call this a favorite photo (it's not mine), but I will put a link anyway.

Last DT&I (GTW) train out of Jackson, Ohio. March 27, 1984. It brings tears to my eyes looking at it.

Hi All,
 
I have many favorites, but being a PRR man I just had to include my favorite engine, #4877 herself. Enjoy

I like that you took this one on the shadow side of the train.  If you had been on the other side, the snow would have been blown out white and the sky would also have been overexposed.  Over on this side, the light range is within the capability of the film and it still looks cold and wintery!

yeah i got a shot on the light side as well and it turned out horrible.  too much reflection from the sun off the snow made it almost look like that wasn't ns with it's black in the front.

Yeh, my snow shots have been hit or miss.  Actually did better on overcast days.

All though in B&W in a color world this is still one of my favorites. I shot it while waiting to embark on a train bound for the annual balloon festival held in Jamesville NY.
 
Okay, it works now.

I'd love to see that photograph, but it doesn't seem to be there.  The page is there, with the caption, but the photograph isn't.

I'd like to see it too, but it's not coming up for me either.  I shoot a fair amount of black & white, including some this morning at the Sioux Falls BNSF switchyard.

Nice pic.  When was that taken? Reason I ask, I photo'd the 2317 pulling into Moscow July 4th (the 11:00 a.m. run).
