I have seen the article by SR. This is a very well done piece. Not a great deal of text just enough to tell what the photos are all about. The photography is excellent and you can see Stein's influence in several of the photos. Stein would be happy to see this article. Especially like the shots with the speeders in them. How many of us took time to shoot these simple everyday occurrences on the railroad. The opening spread with the orders hung brings back so many great memories of SD-45's blasting through Norden picking up orders. The areal shot of Norden is a unique view showing the complex as it appeared in the early 70's when there were still significant wood sheds standing. This was such great place for railfans to hang out. Kudos to SR for this wonderful piece.
