Excellent geometry, Bill, and dynamic with the strong diagonal orientation.

Wonderful work here Bill.

It reminds me of my early teens when steam traction was in rapid decline. My friends father was a foreman of a steam depot and we were both train spotters at that time.

We were allowed to walk around the depot on Sunday mornings and I can remember my mates father shouting, "look before you cross any track!"

Fun times.

That is a very complex switching yard. It must have kept many a brakeman busy.

There is a certain fascination about trains and railway lines which make for great images such as this

A great mono giving it an aged look. Love the lines, pardon the pun, they are so disorderly in order.Grin

Excellent monochrome and and excellent POV. The tracks seem 3D and the bokeh is quite unusual from this short tele. An image I'm sure that most of us would like in our own portfolio Bill. My Wee Tree in appreciation.
