Sunday evening at the Riverside, California Metrolink Station and the trains “sleep” until the commuting week begins Monday morning. The engine facing the camera in the middle ground is an Electro Motive Diesel (EMD) F59PH. Metrolink has 23 of these engines in their fleet, each one weighs 260,000 pounds and they are each capable of generating 3,000 horsepower and a top speed of about 63 miles per hour. The other engines seen here are EMD ‘s F59PHI which weighs 268,000 pounds generates 3,200 horse power and reaches a top speed of 110 miles per hour; Metrolink has 14 of these engines in service.

As part of my Interpretive Digital Imaging exploration I used Topaz Simplify to reduce details and give all the prominent features a more soft, paint like appearance, with a little tweaking of the strength of edges. I then masked in a second layer from the unsimplified image to gain back some detail in the engine in the middle ground and all of the lights.
