Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him two lips like roses and clover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Have been thinking about camera balance, weight and compacts over the last couple of months. Bit cold and slippery yesterday so just popped out for half an hour to "test" my eBay purchase of a TZ100 now I can hold it confidently with a "stick on" grip. DXO and Topaz works wonders and I'm pleased with what it can do. Same trains I've posted before but different locations.

Seeing trains in snow scenes always reminds me of Dionne Warwick singing the theme from the movie Valley of the Dolls.

Gotta get off, gonna get
Have to get off from this ride
Gotta get hold, gonna get
Need to get hold of my pride

When did I get, where did I
How was I caught in this game
When will I know, where will I
How will I think of my name

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What's in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I'm bound

When did I get, where did I
Why am I lost as a lamb
When will I know, where will I
How will I learn who I am

Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
Tell me, when will I know, how will I know
When will I know why?

Just saw this on the front page 👍 and after my first reaction of "Cool shot! 🚂" I have to ask.... was that train in motion when you did that setup? If yes, just wondering how much time you had to take the shot before the train got up to where you were near the tracks.
Thank you Kevin. It was not moving but we were just coming out of the arctic blast so I wasted no time to get the shot. It's a small yard near to my residence and their main business is hauling sand. They also bring back older rail cars that are destined for the scrap yard.
