Southern Railway No. 154 Photography Night Photo Session 6/16/2017

by Chris Guenzler

I drove down to the public parking lot near the Ruth Chris steakhouse and parked the rental car. I walked to where the night photo location was and met the train crew of the Southern Railway 154.

Back on the ground, two last shots of Southern Railway 154. At this point, I decided to call it a night and drove back to the Super 8 for a good night's rest before the photo charter trip with Southern Railway 154 in the morning.
