Trains in Real Life
show complete trains are difficult to take at the best of times.
Back in the 1880's the trains had to stop and pose for
photographer/s, usually with some extremely interesting scenery
in the background. With some cropping, contrast improvement, and
enlargement, the sense of the actual train comes into view a
little better. Here are a few that give an impression
of the trains and the terrain they traveled.
