Way back in 1976 I took a steam engine ride on a steam engine tourist train from Lambertville, NJ to Flemington, NJ. I should Google that line & see if it's still running. One of my good friends in St. Louis, MO worked for the railroad as a track repairman. Talk about a railroad buff! I'd love to make contact with him and send him this photo. Damn that Sony NEX-5N produces some sharp photos. It's got the best focusing sytem I've ever seen. Glad you enjoyed the shot. - Bob
