Steam Locomotive

The front end of a locomotive on display in the Smithsonian in the American History Museum's railroad section. This class of locomotive was built in 1926 by the American Locomotive Co. in Richmond Virginia.

 

The photo above was made with a D200 using the ambient light from nearby windows at camera right and a bit of ambient room lighting. The photo was processed in Lightroom 2.1 and Photo Shop CS4.

 

The Shorpy's site of old photographs has a great 1926 B&W photo of the same model of locomotive (#1396) when it was brand new. Here is the Shorpy's Link

 

This American History Museum link. has a photo and a lot of facts about this particular locomotive.
