Not Great, But Memorable

Some days are grubby and you do your best with what you have. In this case it is high speed Ektachrome slide film push processed to ASA 400.

Thankfully, using modern photo editing software — in this case Lightroom and Photoshop used together — has resulted in the best this image has ever looked, considering the circumstances.

The late Mike Ondecker and I found Western Maryland Nos. 64, 414, and at least three other WM locomotives on the point of an eastbound Norfolk & Western train in Brewster Yard in mid 1972.

No, this photo won’t win any awards, but what a memory it brings back.
