Snail’s Tales’ Useless and Frivolous Information Team (STUFIT) proudly presents this photo of what undoubtedly is a train on railroad tracks (where else would a train be?) somewhere not too far from the Union Station in Washington, D.C. The red arrow I added points at the engines (there appear to be 2 of them).
Here is a closer look.
Here is a question for everyone. Is it possible to determine the direction of travel of a train from one aerial photograph only? Don't forget that the engine could push the train from behind while facing either way.
Aerial photos are from Terra Server.
In a future post, STUFIT will show you how to identify railroad tracks in aerial photos.
