Driving that train, high on cocaine..

Recommended Posts

Casey Jones is ready, watch your speed,

Trouble ahead, trouble behind,

And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

This old engine makes it on time,

Leaves Central Station 'bout a quarter to nine,

Hits River Junction at seventeen to,

At a quarter to ten you know it's travlin' again.

Trouble ahead, Lady in red,

Take my advice you'd be better off dead.

Switchman's sleeping, train hundred and two is

On the wrong track and headed for you.

Trouble with you is the trouble with me,

Got two good eyes but you still don't see.

Come round the bend, you know it's the end,

The fireman screams and the engine just gleams...

it dont seem to impress the ladies but i can't get enough of looking at trains. i like the shot out the back of the caboose it looks like there is a figure stood inbetween the tracks a little way in the distance.

Good eyes, kiddo, there is in fact a conductor, or rail worker walking the line, i wish the pics came up better, but the scanners suckin and the digital isnt that great...werd.

 

Ill try and figure out a way to zoom in on those streaks in a bit for you all..peace.

Awesome, as I opened up this post a live version from 78 came on my stereo. Undercover deadhead.

I wish engines still looked like that, those are tough.

i was looking at this book in the library one day, it was by photographers that would take pictures of certain spots where young kids would go swimming, or by a drive in theatre, or even looking our a window from inside a familys dinning room. anyway, the one thing all these had in common is that there was a train rolling past in every scene. and i think this dates back to the 30's or 40's. amazing stuff and im gonna try to look some of it up so i might have some images comming your way.

Link set his camera at a low angle so as to enhance the size of locomotive No. 2172 against the water tanks.

Disappointed with his daytime shot, Link used flashbulbs to highlight swimmers and train against the powerful geometry of the bridges.
