Through the fields in the pouring rain

Waiting for the train at the Route 512 crossing just south of Bath revealed that there were 30 cars in the consist - all of them either covered hoppers or centerbeam flats loaded with lumber.

Title:  Township Line Road
Description:  ...but it wasn't supposed to rain until the mid-afternoon! Grain silos (and some unwanted poles and wires) provide a backdrop as H75 crosses Township Line Road on its way to Stockertown. Quite evident in this photo is the heavy rain, which prompted us to call off the chase here.

Golden Horses
Title:  Golden Horses
Description:  Early morning glint lighting catches the side of the lead units on 24V. Unfortunately a slight overexposure killed the intended effect (and caused some unwanted blur), but it's still something different among a sea of coming at wedgies.

NS 214
Title:  NS 214
Description:  Catching a 40-mile per hour train in a patch of sunlight only a few feet in length requires either some precise timing or the use of burst mode. This time the former option worked well enough to at least keep the front of the engine clear of shadows.

NS 21M
Title:  NS 21M
Description:  The trailers form a slight arch pattern as they crest the hill behind 21M's power. The UP SD70M in third was the only non-NS engine seen during this trip. The lead unit is about to pass over the 29.9 hot box and dragging equipment detector. That cut off whistle post is a compositional blunder that I'd rather not repeat. (11:06AM)
