Amtrak and Shadows at Bort Road

One in a series of posts about photographs that I created last summer.

It was Labor Day weekend 2016. I got up before dawn to drive to North East, Pennsylvania, to catch Amtrak’s eastbound Lake Shore Limited.

If I waited too much longer in the year, there would no longer be good daylight at Bort Road when No. 48 passed by.

It is due out of Erie, Pennsylvania, at 7:20 a.m. and gets to North East about 20 minutes later.

The sun angle was still pretty low when No. 48 showed up right about on time. That meant that the bridge carrying Bort Road over the CSX tracks still was casting shadows on the rails.

Somehow, I didn’t mind that because it gave the photo a little interest of its own.
