This is a bit different type of train photo for me.  I shot this image in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan and it is 5 shots done Vertically and then stitched together.  Because I was so close to the locomotive due to the tight confines of the museum, when it was stitched it created the curve which I was able to fix a bit but not all the way without the locomotive looking ridiculous.  It is a beautifully restored Rogers built American 4-4-0 style locomotive that has had 3 names in it's life. It started out in the 1800s as the "Satilla" for the Satilla River.  Henry Ford bought it in 1924 and named it the "Sam Hill" for an engineer from his boyhood days.  In 1929 it was selected to be used for ceremonies to open the Greenfield Village and Henry ford Museum and pull specially built cars so it was named "The President" in honor of President Herbert Hoover.
