A year ago this weekend I stopped to photograph the Strasburg Railroad on my way to a photo charter on the Reading & Northern. Shortly after I arrived I saw Strasburg’s Russell Snow Plow heading out of the yard. I went straight for a cut hoping for deep enough snow to capture the plow at work. Fortunately I guessed correctly.
One from the archives, this time from a Lerro Productions Photo Charter at the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in October of 2013. Shot just after sunset, this scene featured a perfectly restored Mercury pickup truck, Western Maryland 734 and Mr. Helmstetter’s Barn.
In case you missed my original review, please take a minute to check it out. Now that I have my copy of the book (the review was of a pre-production copy), I’m happy to say it is even better than I expected.
To go along with the hard copy, a PDF reference version was recently released by the author to allow you to take the book in the field with you as a reference. The PDF copy is low resolution and formatted specifically for loading onto a smartphone or tablet and can be loaded onto multiple devices.
After hearing that the Solari Board at Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station is due to be replaced, I took my camera along on a recent site visit to capture the board in motion. The classic clicking sound of the board updating will be missed when it’s digital replacement is installed.
