Beautiful! Which lens do you use? The depth of field in all your photos is amazing!
Hi Dheeraj, I use the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L lens, it's a heavy bugger, but it gets the job done!
Wow, that's an awesome lens! 😄
super!
nice, do you have a picture of the whole train on this place?
I did have a more zoomed out version, but it just didn't look right.
ah all right 🙂, i was just wondering what to whole lengt of the train was 🙂
Roel - The trains that run to the north west mines are typically rakes of 72 wagons, either the 120t (gross) type seen above (with modern AC traction and ECP braking), or older 100t (gross) wagons with older DC traction and normal air brakes. Here's a shot of the same train a day earlier, which shows the whole train:

It takes something like 20 hours for a full round trip between the mine and the unloader, including loading/unloading time. Monster trains they are!
