Great shot!!! Nice plug for the old CF&I steel mill in Pueblo.

Very cool shot! Lots of fence posts been made from that time frame steel.
The "HotSHOT from "EXTREME TRAINS" stated "where the wheel meets the rail is only about the the width of a dime in area contact. Less friction and resistance??
Learn something everyday.
Thanks - Keep up the great pic tak'en.

Oh I dunno... it's only one of the coolest shots I've seen in a while. I really, really like the swirling effect of the wheel in motion. The arcs are in opposition to the shape of the wheel, giving it a surreal effect. I bet you planned it that way, eh, Kevin? ;-)

I LIKE the "artsy" shots!
Sometimes there's just too many engine photos for me and seeing something a bit different (like your b&w shots) makes virtual rail fanning more fun.
Keep up the good work!

Good pics, tells a story. Wheel has less than 40% life left, track is in fair shape, lighting is right,
focus is on rail. Like the target affect caused by motion. Thank you for your effort.
