Looks like some well-composed telephoto action here, because the scene shows the benefits of perspective compression (is that the term I'm looking for?) and is very nicely done.
Each rail segment is 34 feet long, while the hoppers are probably 50'.
Mainline track now uses 1/4 mile long pieces of rail that are welded together. Trains don't make the clickety-clack sound so much anymore.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
