It Was Worth Getting Up Early For

Ed Ribinskas got up early last Friday, real early.

Amtrak’s eastbound Lake Shore Limited was running on time and the sun would be rising in Lake County near his home by the time No. 49 passed through.

The early trip to trackside in Perry was worth it as Phase III heritage unit No. 145 was on the point.

On the rear was private rail car Promontory Point. Ed quipped that he didn’t have to travel to Utah to see Promontory Point because it came to him.

The morning also saw a layer of clouds filtering the rising sun, which created a nice effect in the going away image.

Ed also got lucky that the Lake Shore made it through Perry before a westbound CSX freight did that would have blocked his view of the passenger train.
