    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    It has been quite awhile since I posted any photos here. I can't remember if boats are ok too, but I didn't see a separate thread for boats, so here goes.

    The Chacon. For most of the past 25 years I have known it was there, the Chacon has been shrouded behind a dense overgrowth of trees and brush. In 2015, thanks to the work and contributions of many volunteers, the Chacon was brought out of the woods and into the light of day for all to enjoy.

    Excellent use of an ultrawide/fisheye lens Rafael. Very impressive train station. What lens did you use for these shots?

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Last week I took a short vacation in Germany and one day we took the train from Remagen (our base camp) into the Ahrtal, getting on and off at different stations. Here's an impression of the local trains that take you through this lovely wine country.

    1: Departing Ahrweiler direction Remagen


    2: Departing Mayschoss direction Remagen


    3: Departing Mayschoss direction Remagen 2


    4: Arriving in Mayschoss from Ahrweiler


    5: Arriving in Mayschoss from Ahrweiler 2

    From the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. Unfortunately, I did not take good notes on each plane, so I couldn't tell you what this one is. Perhaps someone here will know.

    Thanks Steve! It was a fascinating aerospace museum. I didn't have enough time to explore the planes which are stored outside, so I am hoping to go back in October when I return to Tucson and southern Arizona for another star gazing trip.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    The Museum of the United States Air Force, located at Dayton, OH, is the very best aircraft museum I have ever visited. It includes the largest variety of military aircraft including the Valkyrie, the only one to survive after the other experimental version crashed in mid-air. A new hangar was recently added and houses the Valkyrie. The museum is free of charge and includes plenty of free parking. The new hangar also includes all past presidential aircraft. You can stand in the actual spot where Lynden Johnson was sworn in as President after the assassination of President Kennedy. I recommend the museum highly.

    Thanks for the info Greg. I just don't know if or when I will get to Dayton, OH. I still haven't been to Washington DC to see the National Air and Space Museum.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Below is a picture of my son after his final (fini) flight as a United States Air Force pilot after 23 years of active duty service. Prior to that he spent four years at the United States Air Force Academy. His primary aircraft was the F-15 C Eagle. He has also flown the T-37, AT38B, AT38C, and the T-6 Texan II. He is a Colonel and relinquished command last Thursday of the 80th Flying Training Wing, Euronato Joint Jet Pilot Training after 27 months as commander. The wing is staffed by and trains 14 Nato Nation pilots including the United States.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    It's not often that I see one of the newer Alaska RR locomotives near the road anymore. Security is very tightly enforced on AK railroad property now, so don't even think about stepping too close. I only had a Fuji X-Pro1 with the XF WR 23/2 lens with me today, so this is cropped quite a lot from the original image.

    Re: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    I've been mostly a lurker here so far. But as a train fan I thought I'd make a contribution to this thread. These are pictures that I took in August 2016 while on vacation in the Black Forest in Germany. Every Sunday in July and August, there's a steam train of the Eisenbahnfreunde Zollernbahn going over the Schwarzwaldbahn between Rottweil and Hausach. It also runs this summer.


    End station Hausach. The locomotive is moving backwards to the (new) front of the train.




    The driving wheels are 2 meter in diameter.


    Leaving Hausach station towards Triberg.


    Leaving Triberg station.


    While the train was making a big loop to gain altitude, we took a shortcut in the car to catch up at the end of the Hohen-Tunnel.

    All pictures; Mamiya 645AFDIII, 75-150mm f/4.5 AF-D and 45mm F/2.8 AF, Ilford Delta 400 film.

    Great series spijker! It reminds me of my youth when we went to the German town of Rheine, which had a large depot of active steam engines in active duty. Thanks for sharing!

    Time for some racing again, at the great Bang Saen Street Circuit. I don't really do this anymore, but thought it would be fun to do a race mostly with manual lenses. We'll see what I end up with. Here's a test shot from today while I was waiting for my credentials

    Nice! The locomotive is discretely peeing. I didn't know of this place even though I cycled through the area many times on my Sunday rides through the dunes when I still lived in Zoetermeer. I'll check it out in August when we're back in the Netherlands on vacation.

    Hi Menno, certainly worth the visit if you are in the area. I only found out because recently my father moved to the area (Leiden) and we decided together to check it out.

    Good you noticed the "peeing", they had trouble with the water injectors because the boiler feedwater in the tank between the frameplates became too warm, so they were letting out warm water and filling up with colder water at the same time.

    Here's a view in the other direction, the fireman and driver taking a coffee break after the engine is filled with water and coal for the next trip

    Pieter,

    A few years ago I did a tourist coach trip north of Amsterdam, to Volendam, Marken, and I can remember remarking to someone that The Netherlands reminded me of nothing so much as feeling I was in Toytown!
    Your narrow gauge pictures prove that I was probably right.

    Yes we know we are small

    Even our former queen Wilhelmina knew it, that's why a statue of her in Middelburg has a saying about that written on the bottom:



    Nederland, zij groot in alles waarin ook een klein volk groot kan zijn ( = The Netherlands, act big in everything in which a small nation can also be big)


    Btw, nice alpha, I like the eye-popping red
