Hi Luggers
The highlight of the cruise, for me, an long term lover of ancient trains, 
was the ride out of Skagway on the 3 foot narrow gauge White Pass & Yukon 
Gene and Chris Duprey joined Esther and me so there are lots of shared 
pictures of photographers in action.

For background on the WP&Y railway please consult:

Here's Esther and me in front of the WP&Y RR engine in traditional colours:

Here is a 3 panel pano of the passenger cars - some of which are more than 
100 years old.

I thought, given the ages of some of the cars, a B&W picture was the best 

After we left the city limits of Skagway we were allowed out onto the car 

Here is Gene using his Leica for wide angles and the D700 for telephotos;

And here is the train crossing one of the trestles as we gain altitude.

Please look large. A few more pictures will be added later.

C&C always welcome
