Locomotion
Title:  Locomotion
Description:  Anyone who takes a photograph snaps it because we want to freeze a little bit of time. We might want to say "i was there" or "that was cool". Some photographers like to use little tricks, like polarizing fiters, photoshop edits, or the old "pan and scan" method, like seen below. After giving it a try, i've decided that it's nothing to write home to mother about. I like to see my trains crisp and clear, to capture the moment as a clean stop in time.

FRAD
Title:  FRAD
Description:  The engineer of this consist struck up some friendly conversation as I snapped this photo. This train had been "FRAD", meaning it was basically under special restricted movement orders. Apparently, an inspector with the Federal Railroad Administration had been by Calhoun in the last week, and the four locomotives in this consist has been ordered shutdown because of mechanical and safety problems. On this night, the two lead locomotives were powered up under a one-time move order for a run to the maintenence shops in Nashville, TN. The other two locomotives in the consist were restricted from even being started up.

Kudzu
Title:  Kudzu
Description:  One of the hazards of railfanning in Georgia in the summertime is the man-eating kudzu plant! Originally brought in by the railroads from Russia to control erosion along the right-of-way, the stuff turned out to be a bigger problem than the problem it was brought in to control! Soon, vast areas of Geogia, Alabama, and Mississippi were eaten by the plant! It grows on anything and everything it touches (there is a utility pole under it out of picture to the left), and it grows so fast that it actually even grows on the tracks themselves! Take a knife with you along with your camera!

Summertime Shimmers
Title:  Summertime Shimmers
Description:  This photo is not quite as dangerous as it seems at first glance. Normally, I avoid being on the railroad tracks like the plague, especially when a moving train is nearby. But this was actually the pusher end of a freight that was moving away. I had to walk through the grade-crossing to get back to my car anyway, so I decided to get the quick shot. This photo also illustrates why long range photography in Georgia in the middle of summers is a crap-shoot. Time: 13:10
