Another post on Steamtown National Historic Site. This one is concentrating on the Railyard with Trains & Rail Cars in storage, waiting to be restored or maybe for parts. This area was actually more interesting to see and photograph. A lot textures and rust! And a lot of photo subjects.
Neat series, Reed. The rust is pretty cool!
Thanks Eliza! It was a fun photo day! Lots of interesting subjects!
It is great to see all of these old trains rusting in peace. Seriously, Reed, you did a great job in capturing all of the different textures of the rust and peeling paint, which was often as interesting as the subjects themselves.
Thanks Mike! I liked the rusting ones in the rail yard more than the restored ones. Some of the graffiti was interesting also. Some graffiti I could not post! But the decay & rust was Great! I tried to make interesting images with looking through spaces in the foreground images to other details behind them. Maybe I will do one more post with Large rusting Snow Removal Plows & Blowers. It was amazing they encourage you to wander around on active tracks. Probably they are not used much but right next to ones that are. Thanks again!
Excellent second set!
Thanks Belinda! It is such an interesting place to photograph! I needed a couple of posts to show the range of what it was like there! One last post to go!
Very cool shots, Reed!
Thanks Donna! It was a fun & interesting day. Lots of photo opportunities!
