Remarks & Notes 
A local commuter in his Cadillac pauses at the Verdant View Farm crossing as Strasburg Rail Road decapod #90 speeds by on the morning of October 18, 2020. Built in 1924 for the Great Western Railroad by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, #90 was purchased in 1967 by the SRC for a total of $23,000 which adjusted for inflation equates to $173,234.79 today or about the price of a top-of-the-line Mercedes Coupe. This photo was taken as part of the SRC's 60th anniversary celebration in which #90 was backdated to its 1960s retro livery.

The reason railpictures.net has captured my imagination for so many years. Images of quality and distinction, in other words, amazing railroad photography.

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 far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
