Waving From a Train

Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad crew members are encouraged to wave at people they see watching their train at stations and within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Of course waving at or from a train is a common practice in many other places, too. It is a practice as American as apple pie.

Some locomotives engineers will wave at railfans along the tracks and many railfans like to wave at trains whether the crew reciprocates or not.

These images were made of CVSR crew members waving in Peninsula on a recent Saturday.

In my experience, CVSR passengers like to get into the act, particularly if they see you photographing a train leaving or arriving at a station.

That included that man in the Saint Lucie Sound shown above.

    I used to work on a tourist train in NJ. We would go by grocery store where a lady I used to work with food shopped on Sundays, just when our train would go by. She would wait in the parking lot for the train and always wave at me before going in. Then on Monday morning we would be back at our job. It made the weekend special.
