Very, very nice photos, all of them! I've admired the many you've posted on this site and other websites. You've been out trackside quite a few times over the years! SMc

This is a really nice collection, Steve. I have no doubts your submissions for the second week will be just as dramatic.

Judging by the engineer's errily-glowing eyes in this shot, he must've been looking right at you. Probably seeing spots after that! <G>
Nice shot! (And the others too.)

Take care,
