Los Angeles Junction Number 3 idles in the street at District Blvd., Vernon, CA. August 6, 1961


Model railroading offers the choice of of experiencing our work through two lenses, the naked eye or the camera.  It’s the camera that opens up so many opportunities for interpretation, framing, and presentation.

The image above is of my recently completed Atlas Alco S-2 shot crossing District Blvd. on the LAJ layout.  I used my iPhone 6sPlus and a single photo flood about two feet behind my left shoulder.  Once in photoshop, I tightly cropped the photo and added a sepia tone effect.
