Ellicott City Station, B&O Railroad
This station was the beginning of the B&O railroad, one of the first railroads in the United States. I captured this image after hopping across the tracks literally seconds before this train came barreling at me.

Beautiful shot Walter, I love how the autumn leaves match the yellow engineer car. The whole thing looks like a slice of 1932 or so.

The bowed up handrail in the bottom left is a little distracting at first, but after a few looks they echo that rustic feel that is prevalent throughout the rest of the image.

Maybe I'll head up there this autumn!

This makes me feel so cool and I really miss that!   Is this on Monoply?   I have not played in so long, but seems to ring a bell.   Being that the train is barreling down at you, the sharpness and colors are excellent.   The streaming smoke is also effective to realize that is is moving.    Very well done.
