Union Pacific 3985 on a Foggy Foggy Morning, near South Coffeyville, OK

This was shot in 2001, with my dad's old Ikoflex 120 camera that dated from around 1952. No light meter, nor did I have one. I was using 50 speed Ilford black and white film, and knowing this was going to be a chance, I decided the film needed to be pushed at least one step, to ISO 100. Thought I'd have time to shoot a couple of pics of the train, but didn't figure on the thing roaring past me at around 60mph! I'm lucky the darned thing came out at all.
