Golden Rails

Golden Rails

It was getting late. The rain clouds had moved out and the sun was shining again. Time to get up on the Jackson Street bridge in Amherst over the Norfolk Southern Chicago Line and get some late day light on the noses of westbound traffic. NS cooperated by sending a number of westbounds our way.

Between trains I watched with interest the setting sun reflecting on the rails to the west of the bridge, which is at milepost 213. It was time to experiment and create something out of the ordinary. I was pleased with the results. The track at the far left is No. 2 whereas the track at far right is a controlled siding that leads to Fairlane Yard.
