The Latest Object of Affection for Photographers

A westbound CSX intermodal train with Norfolk Southern and Citirail units for power showed up too early for good nose light so I opted for this across the field view near Peru Center Road. This train would get a long delay in Willard as we will see later.

They will not likely supplant Norfolk Southern heritage units in popularity, but the attractive blue, yellow and gray Citirail locomotives have become quite the catch among trackside photographers.

These are not the usual “rent-a-wreck” lease power. These units are newer and look it.

During a recent trip to Willard, Roger Durfee caught up with some Citirail power. Here is what he was able to capture.

Although a cloud nailed me I still wanted this photo of that NS unit hitting the NS diamonds at Attica Junction.
