Inside the Dalek - At The Staromēstská Metro Subway Station in Prague, Czechia

While I stood waiting for the train to head back to my hotel, I suddenly felt like I was inside a Dalek at the Staromēstská subway station.

BNSF 4207 - Nearing Santa Fe Junction - Kansas City

Image
BNSF 4207 (a GE B23-7) leads a train south at Santa Fe Junction. BNSF 4207 is a patched ex-Santa Fe unit. The train was on its way from BNSF's Murray Yard in North Kansas City, Missouri, to BNSF's Argentine Yard, in Kansas City, Kansas.  The train is making its way down  KCT Track 80, and onto BNSF Main 4. The two tracks that veer off to the left side of the photograph lead to the lower deck of the KCT's Highline Bridge. The two tracks that curve under the West 23rd Street bridge to the right of the train are BNSF's Fort Scott Subdivision.

There are a number of bridges in this photograph. The closest bridge, in the background, is the West 23rd Street Trafficway overpass. Beyond that is the faded green Intestate 670 bridge, at the northern end of BNSF's 19th Street Yard. Just beyond the Interstate highway bridge is the 12th Street viaduct, which is a multi-level road bridge.

NS 5575 - Crossing the Merchants Bridge - St. Louis, MO

Image
NS 5575 and NS 5230 are on the point of a transfer train on the TRRA's Merchants Bridge in St. Louis. NS 5575's train had come to a stop, and was waiting for the other train next to it to clear West Approach Interlocking. Once the other train cleared the interlocking, NS 5575 and its train would continue down the approach to May Street Interlocking, and on to Norfolk Southern's Luther Yard in North St. Louis. The train was coming from the TRRA's Madison Yard in the Venice, Illinois, and Madison, Illinois areas.

The upper front of Prague's Municipal House (Obecní dům)

Image
A detailed view of the upper-front portion of the entrance to the Municipal House, located at Republic Square in Prague's city center. I decided on giving this image, and a few other images, an antique look. Even though I took this photograph in 2015, I felt that when I was processing it, the photograph could have been taken long ago.
