Mini Fake Photography

1983 photo of train coming around bend having just crossed Bridge #9 on the downgrade ready to enter the tunnel.  Taken by John P. Henderson

Where Bridge #36 used to cross the creek.  See original photo.

Looking on the down grade south of Bridge #36.  See the series of photos along with the orginal.

I was playing around with Mini Fake Photography on Photoshop and thought these turned out pretty cool.  They almost look like they are taken from a model layout.
