Not what I set out to photograph that morning, but it looked interesting as I drove by it. While setting up to take this shot, was surprised by an unexpected passenger train that came flying by me on the foreground track. Then, as I'm trying to snap five bracketed shots of this train, IT starts to roll away in the other direction! Hope that's all a good sign.

Well done! It sits nicely between being too subtle and too over the top. Lovely colors

HDR seems to be the ticket for dealing with the difficult midday sun.

Those clouds really help this photograph, a really natural looking HDR, the colours are really punchy without being too overly saturated, and the contrast between the rolling stock and the orangy (rusted) track is effective.
