Hi Train!

kid-in-falls-july-10-x

Whenever I’m track side I’m always looking to create human interest images. Children can be a great subject in that regard.

I was standing in the parking lot on the north side of the Chicago Line tracks in Olmsted Falls last July when I noticed that a father and his young son were watching an approaching westbound Norfolk Southern train.

The boy was waving at the train and maybe the engineer tooted the horn in response.

Chances are it is Dad who is the railfan. He and his wife and son had come to the depot to have lunch and watch a few trains.

This boy may share his father’s interest in trains and may someday become a railfan himself. It all starts here.
