I thought the crowds would be a problem in finding a bit of space to settle and sketch but it turned out not to be the problem I had anticipated. I focused on the steam engine SP and P 700 (Spokane, Portland and Seattle 700) in this head on view. This was a favorite spot for picture taking!

And then moved to a view of the whole scene from the pedestrian bridge over the tracks.

Later I found a spot to get a little more up close and personal to these two very bright train cars.

There was so much activity...... the world of trains and train aficionados. Some miniature and some full scale, everyone seemed to have an interest in being there!
