Building the WW&F Mountain Extension >>>Photo Essay<<<
« on: December 16, 2019, 10:13:44 PM »
Last week, I posted a series of photos on RailPictures.net, depicting track-laying operations on the Mountain Extension, during the 2019 Fall Work Weekend.   Although the photos are documentary in nature and not particularly artistic, I thought the viewership on that site would find the series interesting.   I was pretty blown away by the response.   Each of the 10 images averaged about 4,000 views last week, which is amazing, especially since none of them were linked to Facebook or any social media sites.   Last week, I had more views on RP.net than any other photographer.   Railfans and history buffs just eat this stuff up.

This week, I posted a Flickr Album with those 10 images, and a few more.  I've linked it to the Narrow Gauge Forum and the RYPN.  I think both audiences will enjoy the show. 

For those who would like to take a look at the Flickr Album, here is the link:

For those who would like to see the RailPictures set, you can go to this link:

The images are the same, but you'll also get a sense for the view-counts on some of the photos.

People are fascinated by the stuff that goes on up here!

Kevin,

As usual, your pictures are well composed and capture I moment recreated in time. The beautiful fall colors are icing on the cake.
