Also found in Ringoes NJ rail yard in November 2008.
For a much larger view go here.
Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
Superb selective focus; it really directs our attention.

So were you authorized?

@GJC: Lol...no but I don't think they were too strict. This yard is used by serious railroad enthusiasts. They are individual private owners who restore train cars, for their own private use...it is not their profession but rather it is hobby they are very passionate about. It is like taking model railroading to the extreme level. One guy lives there in his restored car...It is a very large car complete with all the amenities including a modern office. I have not seen the interior or met the man but I have talked to other owners who know him well. It is a very interesting group of people from various walks of life that share this passion.
Excellent detail and nice colors Laurie!
Have a good Weekend!

Railroad yards are such a treasure trove of unexpected images like this . . a kind of unintentional art !

Thanks for the response. I had no idea! That is just amazing. I assume this is a hobby of some rather wealthy people? Can they take their cars to other places by train (like mobile home)? Really interesting phenomenon!

@GJC: I think it is a pretty diverse group of people. Some wealthy but not all. They often buy the cars in pretty bad shape and put a lot of time and sweat into working on them and restoring them which can take years.
Yes some do transport the cars to different places from time to time. They "loan" them to different recreational rail lines for show and tourist rides etc. as well.
Some people have Cabooses that they keep in this yard and use them like weekend campers with their families...it is really fun for their kids. Sleeping in a caboose using a little pot belly stove for heat...really cool. They even decorate them for the holidays.
I think they pay some sort of storage fee to the yard to keep the train there. It is also home base for the Black River and Western Railroad which you can read more about here. and here.
awesome shot, such vivid yellow and great DOF selection

nice colors and well details...
24 Jan 2009 9:29am
Beaucoup de couleurs et de lumière pour ce passage interdit. Cela donne envie d'y entrer par curiosité, bien vu...
24 Jan 2009 11:05am
Laurie - this shot is very well composed. I also like how the sign is backlit and glows somewhat. Nice job..
24 Jan 2009 4:20pm
Estupenda composición. Encuadre y colorido. El desenfoque del fondo a 2,8 resalta el cartel y el mensaje es más directo. La nitidez de tus fotos es increible. Un saludo.

Excellent framing and fascinating color combination. Love the way you composed this shot, excellent work!
24 Jan 2009 10:43pm
Of course when I see that sign... it makes me want to move the sign... hehehehe
25 Jan 2009 2:45am
Careful selection of an everyday scene and excellent technique has produced a really memorable image.
25 Jan 2009 3:44am
i see those all the time - it just means "photographers welcome"!
26 Jan 2009 10:26am
