Vintage New Haven.
A pair of boxcars, one still in New Haven livery, wait to be loaded.
This late 1970's scene is staged on a module with a photo backdrop of the warehouse and cloud-filled sky.
The New Haven boxcar is Kadee (Micro-Trains), modified to have a simulated
cushioned underframe and sit lower to the railtop. The Boston & Maine boxcar also received the
cushioned underframe modifications, but already stood at the correct height. The original warehouse photo
was shot under direct sunlight, using a digital SLR set at ISO 200 and
auto shutter settings for outdoor scenes. The cloudy sky is from stock.
This scene was shot under daylight augmented with one halogen 750-watt flood lamp standing in for a strong
sun, using a Nikon D70s
set at ISO 200 and f29 for
1/4 of a second. (June 2007).
