Remarks & Notes 
You can feel the humidity in the air just looking at this image. It was the summer of 2003. I was relatively new to night photography, but I knew time was running out fast for the E60s and I needed to get as many photos as I could ASAP. Their assignments were already limited in number, and the best chance for seeing a bunch in one place was the shops. I packed several rolls of film in my gear and shot my last active E60s, knowing it would be the last time I'd get the chance to do so. I can remember sweating in the hot and muggy night, as I set my camera and more or less guessed at exposure times. Night photography on film is truly an art that involves a much bigger learning curve than with the instant results of digital imagery, and I was very pleased that I got a good amount of "usable" shots. The 603 was saved, and still can be photographed at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, but all of her sisters met the torch. I believe the last run of an E60 occurred that fall.
