Remarks & Notes 
"Spencer Shops" ===== It's all about perspective. I climbed atop a shuttered Chicago and Northwestern passenger car undergoing restoration adjacent to the turntable for this shot. The doors were locked but the platform above the coupler was open so I climbed up. The museum staff said it was ok, but to stay safe. I wish it could have gotten higher for this shot but being close to eye-level with this massive machine was a stare-down that transcended time. O. Winston Link is one of my influences and this was a shot worth the effort that only two other shooters attempted that night. N&W 611 poses for photographers during a special night session in Spencer, NC during Labor Day weekend 2018. 2018 RDKPhotography Sony A7 RIII No printing, reposting, sharing, copying, editing or redistribution of any kind without written permission.
