Picture Of The Week

Running on the RanchIf you missed the Pacific Coast Railroad Roundup last Spring at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch you really missed a treat. It was a step back in time, with three live steam trains running along with antique cars, trucks and other cool old stuf. This is a one a year event hosted by the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum. www.slorrm.com

Tech Tip: I was able to get the two locomotives in one shot after one of them was taken out of service with mechanical problems. (It is 109 years old so I guess that can be expected). I used a digital black and white infrared filter on the image that gives it the soft black and white feel that I was looking for.
