    BTW, there is about $2 million worth of buildings or more at Vandalia. Who owns them, and what's happening to them?

    Some are still standing, some were given away, the rest were torn down and scraped.

    Way fewer than that, now, SM. The Dayton International Airport owns the whole thing now, lock, stock, and barrel.

    Handlepuller, you did a fair job but keep working on it. With practice you might get it right.

    Hi Lumper, you're right I started by trying to keep the same perspective from behind the driver but was missing too much. I wanted to give the feel for what It was like riding on the wagon. I also knew if I took them all out the side you wouldn't have known I was riding. You don't always get the results you're after....it made sense at the time.......

    Shoot well,

    Jim

    Skrap, you can copy it or go to the site and buy a copy for a nominal price. I don't make anything from the pictures it's just another expensive hobby according to my wife.

    Steve, You're welcome, I live in Butler Twp. let me know if you need a higher resolution copy of the picture.
    I haven't printed a large copy yet and it may need tweaked as it's mostly used on monitors and may print pretty dark.


    Shoot well,
