We visited the quaint train station in Ashland, VA today to watch for trains. When we arrived we met a group of 4 or 5 other camera-wielding trainspotters. We eavesdropped on their train stories and they gave us real time updates they were receiving on the their train chatter devices.
While we waited Eli used my camera to take some pictures. These are his images and have not been cropped or otherwise edited.
He REALLY wanted to take pictures of the other trainspotters but I said no (mean Mama). Maybe next time.
The trains roll by fast, close and loud so they are still a bit overwhelming. Once the trains arrived he wanted to cover his ears and watch, not take pictures. We saw 4 fours train but there is only 1 picture of a train.
