Perhaps my best at Speed Photo /PM 1225 (Second Week)
Author: Mgoldman

Pere Marquette #1225 paced at speed near Boon, MI in August of '03.
No Photoshop effects here, the PM 2-8-4 has a painted look to it.
Note the shack that appears to bow at the presence of this engine.

BTW - it is expected that repair and maintenance of this engine will
be wrapped up shortly and the Steam Railroading Institute is busy
preparing for this holiday season with a series of (4) North
Pole Express journeys later this year. Details forthcoming.

Mitch,

You've got so many great pan and pace shots, how do you pick your favorite? Your black 4449 shot was fantastic, your QJ shot was fantastic, etc., etc.!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

Michael - I think it's from years and years of
railfanning - y'know, you get to an area and before
you are ready and a train whizzes by. Then you leave
and as you are walking away another one whizzes by.
I guess I just got used to turning around real fast
to look at the trains I missed ; )

Looks like you have first and second place nailed, Mitch. You must be a member of SRI--I got my newsletter, too. Glad to hear that the 1225 will be up and running for the Polar Express (OOPS, can't say that, even for 1225) excursions.

Thanks Jim!

Now if I could only learn to take pictures of trains
that aren't moving... and yes, I'm a member of the
SRI (Steam Railroading Institute). Hopefully I'll
get a chance to see some TO members and the 1225 in
snow, assuming I can get out of PA for a weekend.
