Riding the Rails

August 25, 2012. Kirkwood, Missouri.

I decided to play around with some of the motion filters in PhotoShop. This is an old autorack car on display at the Museum of Transportation. I just wanted to see if I could give the image the illusion of the rail car rolling along.

This link is to the non-motion edited version of the image I posted: https://plus.google.com/+TomGatermann/posts/ho7CDYjQCK2

GO Transit 606

July 10, 2014. Toronto, Ontario.

GO Transit 606 pushes an afternoon commuter train west toward Strachan Street. At the time, the construction in the background was a project that was grade separating the railroad tracks and Strachan Street.

I'm late to the game this week. Life has just been very busy. Here's my addition for Transport Tuesday this week. Looks like there was a number of people playing along with +Shelly Gunderson and me this week. Thanks to all who participated.

Looking Down McCaul Street

This view is looking south on McCaul Street toward the CN Tower, by OCAD University (formerly named Ontario College of Art and Design).

Niagara Falls Observation Tower

July 8, 2013.

An observation deck and tower on the US side of Niagara Falls. The tower is part of the Maid of the Mist tour boat complex, and houses the elevator that takes people down to the boat docks.

Posting this for the #joinindaily theme of "vertical lines" by +Johnny Wills.

It's Transport Tuesday again, everyone. If you have a transportation related image go ahead and share it. Be sure to tag both +Shelly Gunderson and me, and mention the theme's hashtag, so that we can find your posts.

Contrail

I'm posting this image I snapped quickly last week, while outside walking on a trail. There were a number of jets leaving contrails across the sky while I was walking. The framing of the contrail is a but off. I had to snap this fast and then run after my daughter who was running down the trail. When I snapped the image I thought the contrail was more centered between the branches.

It is Transport Tuesday again. +Shelly Gunderson and I are hoping you will share a transportation related creation with us and the rest of the G+ community today.

I'm dropping a "pro tip" today for Transport Tuesday. Be sure when you back out of your parking spot that you are taking all of your car's parts.

It's once again Transport Tuesday, and I'm late to the game. I see lots of people are already playing, and it's great to see your posts. I probably won't get to commenting on most of them until later today or tomorrow. If you haven't shared a transportation related post yet, be sure to tag +Shelly Gunderson and myself, and use the #TransportTuesday hashtag so that we can find them.

Here's my addition for today.

UP 844 at Kansas City Union Station, Part 2

May 30, 2006.

Union Pacific 844 sits at Kansas City Union Station, while waiting to depart for the day's excursion. Today's run was from Kansas City, MO to Fairbury, NE. The locomotive was heading back home to Cheyenne, WY.
