    It still amazes me that we still build railroad tracks by nailing the rails to big wood beams set on gravel, just as we did 150+ years ago.

    And I love these pictures.

      Train tracks are so evocative! An easy photographic subject.

      Really the most significant change is that the rails are welded into 1/4 mile long sections rather than bolted together every 39 feet.

    The Vitoret takes a very sharp picture compared to many of the others.

      The Vitoret’s lens is so sharp it will put your eye out. Too bad I didn’t much enjoy how the camera felt in my hands.

        I just fixed a lovely Vito B with the Skopar lens so I’ll have to test it out based on what I saw here.

    Nice assortment. I think the first black & white is my favorite.

      Thanks! Those are the tracks in little New Augusta, Indiana.
