I know I am again behind a couple of days, but crazy schedule…
On Tuesday I stopped and took some photos at the Virginia Museum Of Transportation in Roanoke, VA. Wonderful!!! They have a GG1 sitting on a siding in their railroad collection. This locomotive, built for primarily passenger service on the Pennsylvania Railroad was a revolutionary design, both mechanically and aesthetically. The basic design was by Donald Roscoe Dohner, with the finishing aesthetics done by Raymond Loewy. This is an infrared photo to give better contrast on a gray day.

One more, and I should mention these were all taken with my new fish-eye lens. The weather has been very gray on this little road trip, so thus this one topic. Will try for something new tomorrow. I do however plan to take some more photos here on my trip north.

I hope to get back to Williamsport and explore the possibilities here with different light.

A photo of my old beach bike.
Beach Bike – Hilton Head Island
Should have waited to post this another two days.
Old 14, East Broad Top Railroad
Craig Angle took me to see the East Broad Top Railroad for the first time around 1970, and returned again with my friend Suz in 1973. Craig and I had returned there a couple of times in recent years to photograph it again.
Light and Engine
I always enjoy taking photos of rusty boats, something about the texture and lines.
Ocean One, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ
This is more of a marine railway than a sunken boat photo. Marine railways are great examples of basic mechanics used to achieve a difficult task; how you get a large boat out of the water.
