First off, GREAT SHOT! Did you use a timer release for this shot. If not how did you do this shot?

Love it. Captures the whole thing about the power and passion of the steam era. Sandy Cut? And not Pittsburgh or Altoona? I have to get myself over to Kentucky right away.

Did you honestly think he ran in front of the train to get it?! Then it would say "Yes, I did survive!" Great catch.

This is amazing Larry, this is proof that steam still lives on.

This remains one of the most awe-inspiring steam photographs in history. I have been awed by this photo for years!

Great shot! I took a video of former Sou 630 running over my camera once, but nowhere as good as this picture!

Note to all concerned, the comment "yes, camera did survive" is purely tongue-in-cheek. The reality of this shot is that the train was completely stationary at the time. The train had just completed a photo run-by and the opportunity for this shot presented itself as the photo line made its way across the tracks to reboard the train. You can see other passengers coming off the hill side and others walking towards the back of the train. It would be complete irresponsible to place a camera in the middle of the tracks in order to capture a train in motion passing over.

I have an old poster of this shot that hung on my wall for years. It is done as if you are looking out a window through the blinds. I had never seen the original. It looks better without the blinds. Stunning.

Great shot of a massive and handsome Mountain type. It's a real shame that it wasn't saved. The October 1959 lease by the L&N for the Louisville to Nashville round trip was sponsored by the Kentucky Railway Museum but I've been told that there weren't enough funds to save the locomotive from the scrapper's torch.
