Continuing the marathon of railroad photography of mid-and-late-October 2005, we stop at Live Oak on our way home on the afternoon of Wednesday 26 October 2005 to get some images of a westbound – or northbound – train led by an interesting locomotive.
Not only does the leader have a spartan-cab, but it has the flared radiators of SD54s, though I am not sure what model it is.
What model is it?
Well, let’s have a look in the other direction, and convert to grayscale too.
This was, at the time, the best that I could do; I was still marooned where I was marooned, and now my plan to get to be a Mid-City resident by early 2006 was dashed. I’d eventually get there, and three years to the day after these pictures, I shot action on the Norfolk Southern Bernadotte Line in Mid-City.
That’s it for pictures today. We’ll have a much-needed day off from railroad photograph tomorrow followed by a three-day out-of-state weekend of foaming and photography. Stay tuned!
