Mssrs. Flatt & Monroe * -

I had no choice in the early and mid-1960's but my dad's old East German Practika, which very early on in my railfanning "career" acquired a cinder or two that – along with its very mediorcre 55mm lens – virtually guaranteed photos similar to the one posted above (except for the sepia toning), even after significant efforts to clean them up.  I posted several of them (probably way too many) here on the NGDF a few years ago — see the thread starting at [ngdiscussion.net] . . .
