Weekend Leftovers - March

With winter coming to an end in about 12 days Gary Pembleton passed along this interesting BBQ photo. What a nice lead-in to a more favorable season. This coil car would make a great addition to any railroaders fleet I would think.
You may have seen this the current Classic Trains (Spring 2014) Jim Shaughnessy has a very nice article called "Variety in the Valley" which features a good amount of Jim's photos along the Connecticut River line. He covers all five Class 1 and four short lines over 10 pages. The extra full page photo on page 4 is relates to the CPR-B&M joint passenger service which Jim explains in his feature.

 How times have the February 2014 issue of Sail magazine they included a feature covering 6 tips one can use to get better photos using a smart phone. It appears we are moving away from the camera these days. Two of the tips I did find noteworthy. One, use your RayBan sunglasses to shoot through to get a polarized effect. The other is to print your best and precious images on good quality paper as it appears no one is sure yet if files will be readable and usable into the distant future......paper will......does the future hold railfans out trackside with only a smart phone...George Dutka
