Recycled Train Car/ Sepia Scenes

All Aboard!

Hey! Where are we going?

Rail-car Restaurant

Out to eat! This quaint restaurant is beside the Georgina Town Hall in Keswick, Ontario.

And, yes, I coloured the first photo in layers, erasing the sepia from the red lights and train logo in the top layer before combining layers 1 and 2 by "flattening" them.

see you there! said...

I'd certainly like to have a meal there. There are some railcars made into individual "cabins" in the Yountville area nearby. We've never stayed in one but did have the opportunity to take a walk through and they were quite snug and nice.

Well done! At first I thought it was a hamburger stop on Hwy 11 going north..I forget the name.Every one stops there!
You did a great job on altering the first image!

Love old train cars...especially those made into restaurants. And this is a very effective treatment of a sepia...that little bit of color is WOW!

I like the first picture with the red a lot.

That CN rail car is beautiful, and it is perfect as a restaurant. You could sit at the table, close your eyes and almost imagine being served a sumptuous meal while climbing the Canadian Rockies...

The map of EG is great. I have not been North of Highway 401 and Pearson airport, and I am sure that T.O. is only the beginning of a beautiful Ontario. Cold in the Winter, but beautiful in the summer I imagine...

Very neat! Nice that the railway cars can be used, as restaurant. Even better when they van be used as railway cars... :-)

Rose said...

Oh, I like this...is the food good?

Talking about theme restaurant, the food must be good. Love the sepia toning here.

kden said...

We have two converted railway cars in town; they're great. You've captured them beautifully.

B Squared said...

Nice shots. Is the food any good?

ROSIDAH said...

Congrats on your award! Friends are some of the best things in life that could happen to you :). I love the effect you added to the photos. What a great choice to leave some parts in the original colors. Have a wonderful day.

Pacey said...

Ha, they really look neat. Very well done sepia. I love that second photo. Looks really classic.

PJ said...

Whenever I visit with you I can't wait to see what will greet me when I scroll down. I love when old train cars are used for other purposes. Great sepia for this week.

Becky and Gary said...

How wonderful to make a restaurant from an old railcar.I wish they would save more of them.
Thanks for sharing.

Tricia said...

Great shots, EG! I love the light left red - Very cool & great subjects, too, for SS!

Kris said...

Nice work here!

Vita Stunder said...

Wow EG, you really are a talented photographer!

I'm all in to old trains, abandoned places.. So your shots is like heaven to me!

I find swedish people a bit stiff when it come to 'thinking' about pictures - using their 'so called' intelligence..
So I join you guys instead on 'Sepia Scenes' and I will start on 'Mono' too..

Have a great day!
Anna :)

We had one of those train car restaurants when I was growing up in Pocatello, Idaho. You made it look spectacular!

kaye said...

I love the way you left the red and the orange. such a great shot. Hope you can stop by to see my sepia scene Thanks!

Robin said...

In NY old train cars like that used to make great diners :). Nice job on the processing.

jay said...

I love recycled train carriages - there used to be a restaurant near to us that used two of them, linked together.

Nice picture - especially with the crossing sign!
