Another Lurker Surfaces

Hi everyone, I too have been requested to surface... or be dismissed. I've actually followed the forum for over a year, just never got around to posting anything. As my handle implies, railway photography is my main interest, if you pick up the magazine TRP (The Railroad Press current issue #80), check out my shot on page 58. I shoot slides, typically 3 bodies (MX, LX, Super Program, MZ-S, MZ-5n, or MZ-3) on the go with KR64, Provia 100F, and Velvia 100F). Wife say's I'm a Pentax Collector also... there's not much I don't have, other than digital (bought her a K200D). Love using prime lenses, all manual focus / exposure, that's the only way to shot slides, as the exposure latitude is so tight. I even have a shutter speed checker to verify my old bodies before I use them (Spotmatic F with SMC 85mm F1.8).

Here's a picture from BC taken in the 1990s.

BC Rocks

Bye for now,

Welcome Railfan. I love trains also, especially steam. Just don't have any real nice scenery where our (freight) trains run down here.

Welcome to the forum, I'm not a train buff, but I can remember a good few years ago when I was in Canada, what amazed me was the length of the trains.

Three engines leading and you could go and have lunch will waiting at the crossings.
