15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
South of the Thomas Viaduct

I used a 1958 Leica M2 film camera to take this photograph. One hand held the camera while the other held onto the bar of an oil tanker. I think hopping a freight train is something only done in America. On the one hand you are hanging on for dear life, on the other you are part of the train itself.
