We were wandering in this small town with many abandoned store-fronts when the train siren blasted. We barely had time to raise our cameras before thr train barrelled through.

the effect of being in a place with so many abandoned houses and seeing the "life" going on with this train had to be striking

I´ve seen 2 days ago a traveling docu in German TV about the Amtrak-Railway between Chicago and New Orleans. Really a pleasure, I think. Nice image!

The train as well as the clouds and light look threatening.

This train looks nice, but the abandoned houses are more attractive.
