These were shot by my son on the Durando & Silverton line during his trip across the States last year...

An late night Airport Express service still has a couple of minutes until departure towards the southern outskirts of Berlin.

A number of commuters get off or board an westbound Airport Express service, on a rainy autumn evening. The brief stop is also used for a crew change. First passengers on track 2 are already waiting for the eastbound counterpart, though they'll need to shelter for another 20 minutes until their train arrives. Taken with pretty much at the extreme end of what I'm capable handholding the 75mm f1.8, I wish I would've raised the ISO a bit more, also focusing of with the Pen-F in these conditions is always kind of a hit and miss. I'll revist this another time.

What to do after a nice Thanksgiving dinner, albeit just my wife and me alone due to Covid? Why, set up the Christmas village and play with trains!

This past Sunday, we took a ride on the Hawaiian Railway train between Ewa and Kahe Point. The Hawaiian Railway Society has preserved and maintained some of the old trains that used to carry sugar cane and pineapples from the plantations to Honolulu, as well as passengers and cargo. Here are just a few shots from our Sunday ride with a group of photographer friends. We were blown away by the Toy Train Museum. Highly recommended.

If you're ever on Oahu and looking for something different, check them out. http://hawaiianrailway.com
Ah, here's a link from Hawaiian Railway's page to historical information of the Oahu Railway & Land, Co. trains. https://oahurailway.com

The EWA 1, one of the locomotives that pulled the sugar trains of the Oahu Railway & Land, Co.

The diesel locomotive that pulled our train ride. We stopped here for a quick visit to the ice cream shop across from the Disney Aulani Resort. What a treat!

A good view of our train car, a flatbed with structures for passengers. We had more picturesque scenes elsewhere.

A rare sight in Hawaii, a railroad crossing. We waved and gave shaka signs to the drivers patiently waiting for the train to pass.

Inside the Toy Train Museum. Awesome displays and model trains rolling everywhere.

I believe this is all the collections of the man who started the museum.

We used to have the high speed trains along this line in South Wales but have to make do with these two-coach units now.
They're considered so slow and ponderous that they're known locally as Welsh Fargo.
This one is travelling along the coast of Carmarthen Bay on its way to Swansea.
