      Just read it Steve. Interesting tiff between Disney and Santa Fe. Love the old pictures as well. Good stuff, thanks for writing it!

          Nice article, Steve! I still covet your hat badge, and I WILL have one someday.

          As a possible point of defense for the poorly composed photograph on page two:
          For some strange reason, this professional photographer managed to cut off the front of the cow catcher!
          Each photograph is an 8" by 10" print on glossy paper, and is exceedingly sharp.
          If this shot was taken on a large format camera (4x5, 8x10 view) then there is really little excuse. But if a medium format was used, the blame may be that of the processor, as 8x10 is not proportional to medium formats (6x9, 546, 5x5, etc.) or the smaller 35mm, and the negative image area would have to be cropped to support an 8x10 print format. I wonder if the photographer was his own processor as well? Either way, a shame, since the engine is clearly the subject here...
