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 camera on my first outing with it so I was experimenting a
lot to see how things came out. 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. 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. There is a large "backstage" area which I did not
photograph. It includes a large storage switchyard and a
spiral up to get trains to the top of the layout.
Drop by and check this out in person in Pleasanton, California
at the fair grounds.
