We have a little train action as we move toward 2013.
Today's shots were taken on the afternoon of October 19. I was doing some mindless wandering. While I was driving on Lackawanna Avenue in Mayfield, I spotted a small freight train off to my right. I needed to get out ahead of it and take a shot.
There was a problem. There was a fully loaded garbage truck ahead of me, and it was crawling. Plus, it was in a location where passing would have been unsafe. Finally, fate smiled on me. The trash truck found a burst of speed. It was enough for me to get a jump on the train. I pulled over the the side of the road, crawled up a small embankment, and I took some pictures as it headed north toward Carbondale.
And, there it goes!
I hope 2013 is a great one, and thanks for dropping by here every day.
