Here's a few pictures from one of my severe storm chasing trips.

I can say that storm chasing and trains go together. :) There are plenty of long coal drags, container trains, and lots of granger operations to see. I forgot too lots of legacy equipment too such as old Alcos and early SW Switchers all over. I think I even saw an old Baldwin on a siding in Oklahoma.

The resolution isn't that great. These were reduced video camera pictures, and the originals disappeared in a hard drive crash about a year ago.

The hails stones were found in western Oklahoma.

Here's another supercell. Notice the lowering on the left and the little funnel on the right. The funnel never made it to the ground, so it never became a tornado. Cool to see though since I come from New England where we have mostly drizzle!

Severe Storm Chasing and trains are one. While out chasing you see trains, and lots of them!

I'm cheating, this is actually a model railroading pic, but I like it because of its atmosphere. The picture is of Mike Chandler who is dispatching his railroad early on in his model RR's existence. His was my early experiments in digital on low light sans flash and is still one of my favourite pics. Mike lives in the greater Vancouver (BC) area but currently his layout is dispatched from an ex-dispatcher in Calgary:

Rick,
Nice pictures but you should know we have a specific thread devoted to "a Little Wildlife"

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4994&whichpage=65

We enjoy all sorts of pictures and many moons ago started this specific one for our wild creature photos.

Atlas newbie here, didn't see the little wildlife thread until after my posts. So not only did I cheat, but I got it wrong too.

It wasn't cheating or wrong. Everyone here is pretty loose on the topic/thread heading and your photos were fine here.
Just thought you might like to know about the other thread.

Rick, You needed a title on that last one of the chipmunks. Maybe we need a contest on that!

Some trivia on them, they are the "Arctic Ground" squirrel, that image was taken in the Yukon beside Alaska. There are very few animals that are "true" hibernators, these little guys and gals are one of them, bears are not. NASA has studied them for their ability to hibernate as a method of space travel. If you lived in Whitehorse in the Yukon, your lawn - front and back - would have at least 6 holes with these ground squirrels living there.

I like squirrels and hold no quarter against them...until the stripped squirrels burrow under my house...even then they don't really bother me. They bother my wife though. She thinks their burrowing will undermine the house and it will start sagging...women!

Tell her, so far no houses have slumped in Whitehorse over all these years.

Danny, Now that is a beautiful photo. You captured an old world look with whatever technique you used to get it. Thanks.
