It was already starting to get dark when I arrived in Olmsted Falls. It has been an unusually warm January day and traffic on the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern was unusually heavy. Almost all of it was going westbound.
What had brought me there was the promise of seeing the Lehigh Valley heritage unit. I had seen it just once before, back in 2012, in Olmsted Falls. But it had been trailing.
I got the LV H unit and waited for the train to pass. There was some sunset color to the west so I decided to see what I could do with it.
To my surprise and delight, I caught the blinking red light of the EOT just at the right time.
It created a starburst effect that provided a nice contrast with the shadows of the train against the last light of day.
