ILLINOIS CENTRAL, locomotive scrapping @ Paducah, May 1960
- Source: eBay
Two original Ektachrome 35mm slides, processed by Kodak, and shot in May 1960 by Don Morice. Don and I were there in Paducah on the morning of May 14, 1960 and had a little time to examine the scrapping yard where locomotives were cut up for scrap. Don took these two Ektachromes one of a 2-8-2 and the other of a 2-10-2 in various stages of disassembly. He got the exposure wrong so they are about two stops overexposed. I darkened them using the tweaks on my scanner program. So, that way you can see better what detail they have. Both are together and I'm starting them out at a low price.
