Back in June, 2015, the ever popular Norfolk & Western streamlined J-Class 4-8-4 number 611 was running trips out of Manassas, Virginia.
Photographer Pat Yough and I had traveled by train to Virginia to capture this event.
In addition to the steam locomotive, I made photographs of the more ordinary train on the move.
Working with my Canon EOS-3, I pictured this Virginia Railway Express commuter train on Provia 100F color slide film.
Last week, I scanned this slide using a Nikon CoolScan5000 slide scanner and processed the high-resolution TIF file using Adobe Lightroom.
From an historical perspective I wonder how many photos were made of this lowly commuter train in comparison to the streamlined steam locomotive?
