Mama Don’t Take My Kodachrome Away

Our good friend, local photographer and railfan from the nearby town of Eastman stopped by the other day and spent the entire morning rail-fanning and photographing a couple of trains and some local sites along the railroad.  Snap Camrenson showed up with two cameras!  One was loaded with black and white (T-max ASA 400), and the other with Ektachrome.

Snap went home to his darkroom, and three days later came out with the images that you see below.  He printed the slides on some new-fangled paper called Cibachrome, which let him make his own color prints.  What will they think of next?!

It’s no wonder it took him three days to process and print all of these photographs.  We hope you like Snap’s work.  We think it clicks.  The trains Snap followed the other day were Mo-pac #76, an eastbound Waldo to Lafayette manifest freight, and Frisco SPL – an eastbound South Park to Lafayette hot trailer train.

Snap also got a few shots of our trusty Sulphur Springs Frisco Fairbanks Morse H-10-44 switch engine, old #274.  We hope you like Snap’s work.  We think it clicks.
