The composition, lighting and color is superb, Jean-Marc, and most deserving of a SCA! In-cab photos of this quality are not easy to achieve and your well written remarks further compliment the dramatic scene you've captured ("A hero" -- Yes, Indeed!). I've been enjoying ALL your South America photos and I can't wait to see how you're going to "WOW" us next! PCA vote from me.

Very nice, I would guess that a difference in elevation would also play havoc with the trainline air decending grades.

Stated perfectly by Jim.. Very deserving, SC. This in-cab photo definitely stands out among the rest and I appreciate having a frequent contributor educate us on a whole different aspect of railroading, an aspect of railroading we're not familiar with. The way you captured this particular image is amazing. A very dramatic scene, perfectly exposed and lit. A PCA vote from me.

This photo is one of the best, if not the best, cab shot I've ever seen. As far as Jean-Marc's South American series, this photo adds the frosting to the cake, adding a terrific human interest, railroader at work story to the awesome, exciting series. Mr. Frybourg's remarks add some cherries to the frosting. The lighting is superb! I must confess, I was out of PC's for the week in question, and I did something I've never done before - I replaced one of the photos with this one! It was Frybourg's photo taken from the hi-rail in the tunnel, which is an excellent photo and is very interesting, but this one is fantastic! Congratulations on the very well-deserved SC. PC and Favorite Photo for me.
