Interesting shot. I bet this would look good as a black & white, or even sepia, too.

I have a a deep love for history. Old relics inspire me to do research and find out about their purpose when they were the modern technology of their time

Feedback
Items like this are often found in out of the way places where they went to be saved and have been forever stored. The passenger car I captured may never be restored nor put back in service, but ones like it are still in operation from Carson to Virginia City, NV. Awesome experience to see
