Thanks!
Yes, I like it best too- but added the others to give it “context”.

Hi ~
I'm curious how you lit #2.
Car lights, flash, or?
TIA

My guess it's the oncoming train's headlights.

It’s lit by the locomotive headlight of the approaching train. All 3 are simply available light.

If so, tricky timing.

Also curious about the exposure, tripod, etc.
I'm not up to speed on night photography.

I sat behind the camera and quickly changed the shutter speed as fast as I could between exposures.
I think the IOS was set at 2500 and the f stop at about 5 and, except for the first photo, there wasn’t time to change them.
I’m away from my camera & computer right now, but if you ask again this evening I can get the exact settings for you.

Nos 2 and 3 are totally righteous dude! I guess headlights give off pretty good available light...

That's okay and appreciated, but not that important.
I need to do more nighttime photography.
I shoot in daylight, but nighttime is a whole different deal.
Thanks for your offer.
Great images!
Phil
