Happy Anniversary!
Author: TexBob

It was 49 degrees this evening, with a wind chill of 47, but I endured the wrath of old man winter to
flash AMTK 161 in its new 50th Anniversary attire on its first trip on #1.
For a change, it was right on time, passing MP25 in Sugar Land, TX at 1930 this evening.

LOL! The light is from 6 speedlites that flash for a fraction of a second.
They're set up about 40' from the train and spread out about 200' along the ROW.
In other words, the light just isn't that bright - 1600 ISO does all of the heavy lifting.

Excellent shot, sir! A friend and I walked out of Tejas Mexican Restuarant in Richmond this evening and caught a glimpse of 161 as it rolled by behind Sonic and Walgreens.

47 at this time of year is downright tropical for some of us!

Yeah, our thermometer says 3 degrees this morning... Southerners and their cold "tolerance" are sometimes hysterical...

Joking aside, very nice shot!
