    Looks like a beloved.....very, very analog....Great, dynamic shot and slight oversaturation suits well!

    Powerful scene with the Diesels hard pulling under full throttle and trailing black exhaust fumes. I can hear the noise!

    Interesting spot, and sadly, the Western Maryland Railroad long ago vanished though their mainline at least remains with just one track... CXS yet seems to stay, now already for some decades!
    Yes, typically, old tracks have to shoulder young diesels here, but nonetheless always an impressive sight to behold! Though, the pic, on my monitor, looks a bit oversaturated... maybe this was your intention at first!
    Best regards, hope all is well!
