The Things You Do to Get a Photograph

There are tales floating around railfan circles about guys who carry saws and other equipment that they use to remove unwanted vegetation from their photographs.

Guys I know have been known to cut down small trees that were in the way. Most of the time, though, it is weeds that are being whacked or at least bent to the ground.

Last summer Akron Railroad Club member Peter Bowler and I spent some time on the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern west of Port Clinton.

We were awaiting an eastbound train at a crossing. Peter decided to wade into the weeds and clear them out.

He didn’t remove all of these plants, but got enough of them out of the way to give us a more open view.
