30 Nov 2009 12:38pm

@MJ: Thank you.

Self-Indulgence from Chicago, United States

I will miss this series. Vibrant red of the caboose but you might want to tone the conductor guys face a little bit. He's red too :)

30 Nov 2009 12:58pm

@Self-Indulgence: He was red from too much sun. Don't forget this is "Eastern" Oregon.

dideban from mashhad, Iran

Very good shot

30 Nov 2009 1:26pm

@dideban: Thank you.

Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

The last car! It seems that this gentleman is like the word end, as a goodbye! It's really a great series and a great opportunity to see a real locomotive as those before!

@Mathilde Collot: Merci.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

A wonderful ending to a super series, Jack ... I really like this shot!

30 Nov 2009 3:10pm

@Judy: Thanks.

don from spokane, United States

I like this shot for the great amount of detail it contains. It does present the caboose's attractive differences - like the wonderful light on the side or the stove pipe. The conductor looks the part too. Well done.

30 Nov 2009 3:59pm

@don: Thanks, Don.

Claudia from Illinois, United States

Wonderful image, wonderful series and a GREAT image/title to end it with!! You need to make that "Blurb" book. ;)

BJ from Murfreesboro, United States

wonderful shot, the details are so good, the caboose is one of my favorite train cars and on our train ride they didn't use one, they had an engine at each end.

30 Nov 2009 8:15pm

@BJ: No caboose; what a travesty!!

bekkah from Pennsylvania, United States

a wonderful series, I enjoyed it very much!! :)

30 Nov 2009 9:00pm

@bekkah: Thank you; it was fun for me.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A perfect capture for this ending of the series! I love the "punch" of color this red caboose provides. Is it me or are those some VERY thin rails?

30 Nov 2009 9:02pm

@Steven: Thanks, Steven. No; you're right; that's the old narrow gauge rails; see my Nov. 28 post.
