Classic Chrome: Alcos and F-units in the Snow.

Typically when I post photos under the ‘Classic Chrome’ heading, I use this to infer photos made from decades past.

Sometimes what was good then is good now.

I made these slides earlier this month (February 2016) using my Canon EOS-3 and Fujichrome Provia 100F. The slides arrived back from the lab and I promptly scanned them using a Nikon Super Coolscan5000.

The common qualities of all four images, in addition to the way they were made, is that they feature classic American diesel locomotives in the snow near Eaglebridge, New York.

Among muy favorite photos from my day-long pursuit of the elusive Pan Am Railways office car train is this view at Eaglebridge that shows the classic old Boston & Maine station, the nose of a westward freight and tracks on two levels. Exposed on Fujichrome Provia 100 with a Canon EOS-3 with 40mm lens.

In my earlier posts (see: Unexpected Surprise: Stumbling on to one of New York’s Rarest Railway Operations and Pan Am Railways Office Car Special (OCS)—February 15, 2015.) I described the details of my adventures along with the digital photos I’d composed. Here are the film images.
