This picture sort of shows how the train station scene is going to work out. You can see the platform in front, and the yard tracks in the extreme front, the town park in the back, and the chemical plant in the distance.
I got a new camera for my 40th birthday a few months ago. Since then, I’ve been working on taking better pictures. This shot is from a CSX trestle at Paris, KY.
The tracks have been removed, but the structure still stands (trains run on the other trestle visible at the right edge of the photo).
Since taking pictures and researching “the real thing” is an important part (I think) of the modeling hobby, and, well, since this is my blog, you can probably expect a few more posts like this one.
ETA: On second thought, i’m not sure I like the way this photo turned out in post-processing (I’m still learning how to do this). I may tray again…
I hope you enjoy!
