These pictures were taken in May of 2014 at the
Pleasanton Model Train Club.
were taken, mostly, with available light. There are a few
made with flash, too, and they are easy to spot. Some
colors really pop with flash on. These were made with a
new Sony camera. For the most part, I am happy with the
outcome. I think I might like to get a soft focus
attachment for the flash for next time, if available. Else
put some kind of cloth or plastic over it. Will take some
experimentation. Meanwhile, enjoy the train setup.
There is LOTS of time and LOTS of money invested in this nice
setup by the current and past club members. I don't have
the details of it but the main track is very long and one can
run multiple trains on the main line and also run trains in the
switch yards, simultaneously, with coupling and
uncoupling. They have shows during the year and during the
time the fair is in town. Drop by and check it out in
Pleasanton, California. See
the last picture for details about the club.
