About the Cover

I know I had a train header here month before last, but this one just screamed "header" to me.

The shot was totally serendipitous.  I wanted to go to the Marketplace at Steamtown, but it was several minutes before 10 and it wasn't open yet.  I decided to kill some time looking trains at Steamtown next door.  The Reading engine was shining in the early fall sun, and I pulled out my phone for the photo.
It's among the favorite photos I've ever taken at Steamtown.  It might not look all that special but the sun angle and the setting really worked for me.
