Waiting for a train
Author: rapidotrains

I took this photo the other day of a railfan waiting for an eastbound train in Kingston, Ontarion on my HO scale Kingston Subdivision.

I seem to be taking a lot of layout photos without trains these days... These are the kinds of photos I wish more railfans would have taken so I'd have clear photos of the surrounding area. It's hard to model a building/neighbourhood when all you've got is 50 wedgy shots that all look pretty much the same.

We ahve railfans on our Sherman Hill Layout in Cheyenne and at one location the photographer has a flash LED that goes off as the trains pass over the sensor in the tracks.

That AMC Pacer may just rust in place if left there long enough.

There must be a Chevy Vega around somewhere too.

The Atlas Ford F100's are 1973 but probably are similar to versions a few years later.  I did a lot of hunting for Fresh Cherries on eBay as there are Mavericks that are 1974 and Pinto's and Bobcats and AMC Gremlins.  Also there are Mini Metals 1970's Impalas and vans etc.  They are out there.  I've mainly been collecting them for auto racks but also road scenes.  There have been some newer 70's vehicles including wagons and pickups in the last year.

Cheers
Jim

One advantage to not having photos of the surroundings Jason is that no one can tell you that you did it wrong!  :)

Since when did the lack of evidence ever stop the "it ain't prototype" police?
