Getting Lucky After Work


I caught wind of Norfolk Southern No. 1065, the Savannah & Atlanta heritage unit, leading a westbound mixed freight on Aug. 19.

With lots of track work around, the train got delayed coming into the Cleveland area, but eventually headed west.

I had a doctor’s appointment after work and didn’t think I would see this unit, but those delays gave me enough time to get trackside afterwards.

The first three photos are in Macedonia near the Ohio Route 82 overpass. Even though this is an unremarked location, I knew the light would be sweet there plus it’s a short section that doesn’t have new crossties along the main.

The last photo is across from my yard office. This train was following traffic so I was able to get ahead of it there and get a photo with ties in it.
