As promised, here's a handful of the shots I captured from the Northwest Railway Museum weekend before last. There is such an atmosphere in and around these retired steel and steam behemoths. A little sadness, a lot of awe, and a quiet grandeur in their dying place.
The future looks bright
On that train all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from New York to Paris
Well by seventy-six we'll be A.O.K.
What a glorious world this willl be
What a glorious time to be free...
