Terrific Shot, Walter!

Wow! That's pretty incredible. Is there anywhere else in the US that can claim to have that many locos under steam at once? Thanks for sharing man!

Applause, applause! What a moment! Thanks for sharing it with us. I tip my cap to the hard-working (and incredibly nice) folks at CSRR and to you Walter, for the job you do letting the world know about this living piece of history.

Very impressive. Congratulations.

Simply superb, from execution to final image - congratulations to you and the hard working crew at Cass.

Awesome shot!!! Wish I was there to get the shot, too.

You are one lucky son of... :) Fantastic setup and execution, the addition of the crews is just tops! Definitely one of my favorite steam shots of all time. BTW, how long did it take you to get up into the tree? ;-)

Not much I can add that the others haven't already said. Thanks for sharing, Walter!

Wonderful Walter! I don't recall there being a tree near your vantage point, so tell me how much bucket trucks are going for nowadays! :)

Loyd you got it, I was in a cherry picker high above the Cass Parking lot. The lift was being used for maintenance and just so happened to still be around the day of the shoot.

Fantastic and fascinated. Welcome to the steam capital city.

Great photo, this would look cool in b&w too.

Way to go, Walter! This makes me proud to be a railfan from West Virginia . The land of mountain RRing and big steam power. From the NS Pokey in the south to The CSX Mountain Sub in the north and places like Cass in between, it's hard to beat WVa as a railroad state. I think Trains shoulda ranked us a little higher than 12th last year.

Awesome shot Walter!

Walter, that's a stunning line-up of motive power you've captured. I know how many man-hours must have gone into making such a scene possible and you've done those guys proud by your superb image. A PCA from me.

I love the locomotives. I love the Shays

Congrats on the PCA, Walter! If there was any shot of yours that deserved such an honor, it's this one. Now if only someone could talk Strasburg into setting up a similar publicity shot...... :)

Very nice indeed. Congrats on the PCA
