    I went on a field trip with the Cleveland Photographic Society today. We visited the B&O Roundhouse restoration center. Within the property are numerous engines of various types and dozens of other train cars. All await restoration that can run a million dollars or more for each. (All the photos were taken with A7II and 16-35/4 or 55/1.8 lens.)

    Lovely series, I love this stuff. That 'Batman locomotive' looks darn serious. Any background info on that one?

    This is not my photo, but it is the same engine when assembled.

    Thanks, Ted. Once restored this machine would make for a terrific movie prop IMO.

    It's the lens. The 55/1.8 is amazing. All you have to do is point it. The lens does all the work.

    Are these SOOC or have you done a lot of PP to them?
    That is some seriously old heavy equipment for sure. Really nice set, I've enjoyed looking, thanks for sharing them.
