2 Car OCS
Title:  2 Car OCS
Description:  Still kicking myself in the butt over this one: this was a 2 car OCS and I had no idea until it went by. Didn't have the time to regroup for another shot. I had shot a series of 5 on the engines ( and still didn't get a decent shot) and the camera took a few seconds to save the pics. By the time I could shoot again, I had watched the huge picture window on the rear of the last car disappear. Rookie with a new toy, go figure.

CSX 4781
Title:  CSX 4781
Description:  Grabbed off of a MPEG movie taken with Fuji Fine-Pix S7000, a still camera that can also take movies. Looks alright in motion on TV but I don't think I'll be posting any more grabbed shots, lousy reso. After viewing video though, I found no reason to purchase a video camera. The S7000 looked as good as the Canon Mini DV recorder that I recently broke.
