EMD GP7 (ATLAS N SCALE), EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, NOVEMBER 21, 2009
Pentax *ist DS
Tamron 90mm f2.8 DI macro
1/4 sec. f27
Another locomotive from my old N scale model railroad that served as a model for learning tabletop macrophotography, this is a replica of the 1,500 horsepower Electro-Motive Division GP7, a pioneer road switcher built from 1949 to 1954. A few "Geeps" of this vintage, rebuilt many times over the years, still can be seen at work on short lines around the country.
