Golden Glow Envelops Downtown Cleveland



Although last Friday was a day of solid overcast along with being cold and blustery, the sun made a brief appearance just before it set.

The low light cast a golden glow on downtown Cleveland. Now all I needed was a train.

A westbound empty tanker was passing over Bridge 1 and the question was would it make it up the hill before the sun disappeared.

It did, and its standard cab EMD was reflecting the nearly horizontal sun. too. The clouds behind the city took on an ominous look, a taste of the winter skies we will soon be seeing along the shores of Lake Erie.

In the second photo the train is just banking onto the new shoofly track around the West 73rd Street bridge construction. Note the “old” main stubs in the foreground.
