May25_Tacoma_Rail_at_Rest_2014

I was driving around Tacoma, Washington in the rain tonight, after dusk. Down a dark road I was going around a very long block to shoot a Taco Truck when I spotted these Tacoma Rail engines lurking in the dark. They made sounds, like breathing, so someone must have been on board. Kind of creepy out alone in the dark. The lighting is from one streetlight and my bright headlights. It was around 9:00PM or so.
Lots of impact with this image, I like the dominance of the red train and the overall colour effect.

Interesting shot. I'm not familiar with that area, I have seen them early in the morning, in idle, over at the DuPont siding waiting for a crew. They are on double track.

There's just something train engines that beg to be photographed. I don't find myself thinking the same about the middle of a train, that's for sure.
