Remarks & Notes 
Rain clouds are rolling out at sunset as the crew sends their power to the roundhouse. NCTM's FP7, Southern 6133, goes for a spin on the turntable in the day's last light, aiming for the glow from its stall to wrap it up and bed down for the night. A twist on the typical pan shot, this was a long exposure done while following the turntable as it was in motion. It took a few tries to get it right, but manages to capture the motion of the world around the still locomotive.
