Hey Bob - I meant to drop in and say how much I like this photo. My apologies for the delay. Fantastic detail in this shot! Certainly some opportunities up your way that are fun to photograph. We get up there once a year for summer vacation and I've seen some old trains but nothing like what you've captured here.

They do have a train that's operational at Clark's Trading Post.

Are there any others that are active in the summer that you know about?

Wow! I hadn't realized this was N. Conway! Great shot! For some reason I thought the trains only ran in the summer..-never knew about the steam engine.

You should offer this as a print. Is it me or is it slightly tilted to the left?
