Remarks & Notes 
There’s no doubt that the highlight of the 1983 NRHS convention was the night photo session at Richmond’s famed triple crossing. Conducted by the late Jim Boyd, the scene featured a Chesapeake & Ohio B30-7 on the top level, a Seaboard System GP40-2 in the center, and a pair of Southern Railway FP7’s on the bottom. Getting three Class One railroads coordinated to execute this photo was a monumental task, and the folks in Richmond who organized this event cannot get enough credit for their efforts.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
