Nice Ride. With a foot of snow coming your way, I guess that's not a recent pic of the car...it looks well preserved though.
No the pic was take in October before we went into the deep freeze and the snow flew. Right now it's tucked away in the garage until the white stuff disappears

And the spring rain has washed the salt off of the roads.

Mine was an '88. They are great to drive; enough power, not too much. But like you, I didn't drive it in the snow!
This one didn't see much snow either in fact it came to Halifax from BC via Moncton. With the 5.0 and a 5 speed shift it will boogie

The Burlington Zephyr.

This photo was taken at the Chicago Museum of Industry and Science. This is direct from the camera with no processing at all. Great lens!

The train has a history for me. It is the very first of the Zephyrs, built in 1934. My dad was an electrical shop foreman for this train. He retired some 36 years later as superintendent of final assembly. He literally touched every one of the stainless-steel railcars the Budd Company built during those years.

Racer: I guess I should have put a smiley face after the "nice lens" comment. It was referring to the processed image. This was taken with the good old DA18-135mm kit lens.

Dave: No. This a photo of the actual train that I did some light post-processing on. I framed a 16" print of the image for my sister this past Christmas. It turned out a treat. Don't ask me exactly what I did to the photo as I used four or five different apps to get the effect I wanted.

Its all good.

You produced a very nice result, and I bet your sister was delighted with the gift.

My sister copies images from my Flickr page to use as desktop wallpaper on her home PC and work PC, then brags about the photographer brother she has.

I should probably print and frame some for her as gifts too.

Budd Company Stainless Steel Train Cars
If it was built by Budd, it passed through my dad's hands. Starting with their first railcars – the Zephyrs in 1934 – my dad was responsible first for the electrical assembly, then all final assembly of railcar manufacture through to the Metroliners. He retired in 1970. Thanks for this pic.
