Is this pic named after the 1976 film of the same name?

Pacing shots of locomotives are some of my favorite pictures ever. Thank you so much for sharing this excellent picture with is. Well done, very good photography.

This is just too awesome. I love the shovel-nose streamliners.

Thank you for sharing.

Im so glad I live only an hour and a half away from IRM, I love riding this one. Great train and most importantly, It survived for use to enjoy. :)

Overexposed sky ;) (I know, can't be changed) but otherwise it looks perfect to me :)

Did you shoot this from another train, a passing car or use Photoshop? I'm inclined to say it is genuine motion blur.
Well done!!

It was raining first of all and it is genuine. No photoshop. Pan shot from pacing vehicle. Look at my camera stats. Slow shutter.

I can't see the rain in the image.

1/32 isn't that slow ;) - I think when I played with pans on cars I used 1/10th to 1/20th.

But good to hear it is a genuine pan :)
So much is done with Photoshop nowadays, that the art of "actual manual photography" is lost.

Well done indeed :)

Excellent! This shot is so good in so many ways, it takes a while to take it all in. Lots of motion blur, but great detail. Shot at just the right height to show all of the open space underneath. Makes it look like it's almost flying, barely touching the rails! Great shot!
