Daily Deviation

Given 2013-03-22
Mountain Thunder by *DragonWolfACe is a brilliant capture, profound in how smoke conveys the ferocity of the train. It's fantastic to see the whole landscape, train and smoke, as these are all features that make this piece a very complete transportation photograph. ( Suggested by John-Peter and Featured by 3wyl )

Amazing capture, and the muted autumn colors really spotlight the train.

Mountain Thunder indeed. I have never traveled to the state of Maryland, but if I ever do, the first thing I will do is ride that locomotive. This is one of the best pictures I have ever seen of this locomotive. That smoke. It deserves that Daily Deviation. Congratulations.

Coling?

:icondugbud62:
dugbud62 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry, thats a typo. It should read coaling. In reference to the use of the line. Not the fuel of engine use. Should it be colliering.?

Just ask if they still use steam engines!

As for that answer, yes, but generally on the weekend is the only time the steam engine runs. [link]

I could tell it was a steam engine. I was wondering if they still use that rail line to haul coal from the mines.?I unnerstand the steam excursion thing. I occasionally ride one north of Flint Mi. the Huckleberry.

:icondragonwolface:
DragonWolfACe Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nope, purely a excursion line. The train is a photographers train with cars that are used solely for this purpose.

I'm sure you see some awesome scenery.Thats a very beautiful history filled area of the country.Sad but true trucking is the bane of the rail lines. We get freight trains.Hauling raw to the D. Fords River Rouge, Zug Island,St. Mary's Cement etc. Some very heavy pulls. With 2 front engines And 2 pushers common.A lot of car haulers and components also. TRS has a repair yard just down the road.

We humans pollute far more than any animal so when there are more of us, then the earth hurts. And theres 3 billion more of us today than 100 years ago. Think about that.

Yes of course there are far more of us now than ever before but thankfully I believe we are trying harder now than ever before to be eco-sensitive.
Well, in some countries anyway! Certain other countries 'China' being the worst offender are making no effort at all which really pisses me off to be honest.
China is also one of the main reasons for the HUGE world population increase!
