Mishap With The Time Machine.

Tonight we step out of the time machine, and checking the date, discover it's the same evening and time! Oh, oh. Who are these people, wearing such outfits as they have on? Maybe the time machine burped. Maybe these people were moved into the future, instead of me moving back. Ha,ha! Tonight finds us at the annual French & Indian War reenactment at Rogers Island in Fort Edward, NY. Conveniently located alongside the CP (D&H) bridge over the Hudson River! My friends and fellow railfans Bonnie and Richard Wingler pose for tonights night photo watching 414s SD 40-2 leader start across the bridge as the rain begins to fall. Not a poor location for a campsite eh? CP contributed an SD 40-2 to the scene. It's nearly a three hour drive down here from the compound, including a stop at a Subway of course. I had planned on shooting 415 returning from Whitehall later in the night, only to notice the mighty fine broadside angle seen here. After expressing my appreciation for the northbound broadside, Richard informed me that 414 was due in a half hour! So I hustled around, setting up a few lights, positioned Bonnie and Richard at the corner of their tent, and hoped for the best! LOL! Thankfully this involved a small area to light, so a handfull of flash units did the job. With a nice little campfire going, (can't you just smell the smoke.....) temps in the low fifties this is really fine. Once 414 had passed by, us three chatted for a while, we had'nt seen each other for nearly a year, before Bonnie and Richard headed off to sleep. I could have stayed all night here, LOL! But, it turned out I would not have seen another SD 40-2. Thank you to Bonnie and Richard for inviting me down here!
