    If you like Astia, a good tonal range, moderate contrast and very fine grain Portra 160 NC is probably your best choice.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    Thanks for the tips; I will try Portra 160 NC as well. Skin tones don't matter to me for trains but a long tonal range is critical. I can mask and punch contrast locally in areas that I need it in post processing. For B&W my favorite films are Plus-X and Tri-X for the tonal range. Ektar 100 would likely be nice for overcast days as long as I keep the sky out of the picture.
