I saw this UP train heading east through Spokane and knew where it was going so I set myself up at a good vantage point for the lighting on this sunny but blustery day. Three giant sized SD70s had these empty grain cars returning to Canada and points east.
My goal was to shoot what I thought were over weathered equipment to show nature does a fine job at making them look worn out.
Vandals add to the problem by adding graffiti to some of the cars. The railroad must go crazy when the taggers do this to their locomotives!
Instead of rust or graffiti sometimes dirt seems to be enough to make things look old.
