Larry, let your granddaughter know she took some really nice shots in very challenging conditions. She's got a good eye for composition, that's for sure.

Well done! The third shot looks like it was planned for quite a long time as everything comes together just right. A sunny day might have changed the look of this too much.

Encourage your daughter to continue with her photography. It is good to see a younger generation take an interest, if at least for a day, in the railroads of the area. I have seen several younger persons posts on here and they have a great eye for composition. It is encouraging to an old rail like me.

to zee that young people like Eilish are interested in trains. I like all 3
photos! Tell her and Pauline to keep on taking photographs, and that we here

Great photos!,and I agree with everyone else's replies. Especially Great to see how she caught the 844 in this kind of weather,which really shows the "Steam" coming from a Steam engine! Love #2 for the steam exhaust and blow-down, and especially #3, with the steam exhaust drifting up,and blending into the clouds in background! Plus a nice/different take on the trip so far! I for one, was pleasantly surprised, when first viewing this!

#3 was perfectly timed to use the signal to block out Eds's heading hanging out the window
