It’s another Saturday morning in late 2005 back at my new favorite morning train-photography spot, CTC Live Oak, and I had the good sense to make this one brief.
We start with a spartan-cab Norfolk Southern Railway GE leading a Union Pacific Railroad train coming in on the Livonia Subdivision.
I like those things.
Next, a BNSF Railway manifest train with a Warbonnet leader approaches the end of the Lafayette Subdivision, or at least the end of the part of it that is on former Southern Pacific Railway trackage, and it stops for a little while to wait for a clear signal.
Well, it was cloudy then, but when the train finally moved, we have sunlight!
That’s okay, but I don’t think that I ever again tried that same tight shot.
I have no memory of what I did after this, but I’m glad that I had the good sense to get out of here and not spend all day doing this “railroad photography” thing like I did Thanksgiving week and like I would do again over the upcoming Christmas break; stay tuned for that!
