Maydelle after dark. Our 2019 Lerro Productions Charter at the Texas State Railroad started with some daylight runbys at the Maydelle Depot, simulating a freight picking up orders on the fly. Here's virtually that same scene, except without benefit of the sunlight. First, charter guru Pete Lerro poured a ton of hot lights onto the depot in Maydelle, TX, and posed TRG #30 and her photo freight for the still photographers. After doing the static poses for perhaps 30 minutes, Pete typically does a few night run-bys for videographers. Instead of simply standing by and watching, a few of us still photographers decide to crank up our ISO and give it a try. Here's what the run-by looked like....at 10,000 ISO, 100th of a second and f/2.8.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
