Penn Central Engine Shop (18th & Canal), Chicago, Illinois
Pentax Spotmatic Vivitar 28/2.5, Kodak Ektachrome-X 1/125 @ f:13.9
Scanned using a Wolverine F2D Mighty scanner.
It was built by Alco in 1924 and, sadly, scrapped in the 1980s. In the 1960s it was used for excursions and, in 1967 and 68, pulled the Schlitz Circus Train of Circus World’s Baraboo Circus World Museum.
Editing was done with On1 Photo RAW 2020. In Tone I increased the contrast, shadows, whites and structure and lowered the highlights, midtones and blacks. In Color I raised the vibrance. I set Details to High.
Next I selected the ‘HDR’ preset from ‘Starting Points’ and made a couple of changes. I changed Color Enhancer from Auto to Sky. I also added Photo Filter (Polarizer) and the Color Adjustment filter to get rid of some yellow in the snow (reduced saturation all the way and increased brightness o bit).

Do you think that there is something about steam locomotives that modern locomotives just can’t duplicate?
