Late on a Saturday Afternoon in Late Fall

It’s late on a Saturday afternoon in November. Farmers are using every moment of their waking hours to harvest their crops and get them ready to take to market.

Maybe the corn is not quite as dry as it needs to be, so its put into a bin with a dryer attached.

Growing up in east central Illinois I well remember the sound of those dryers humming in late afternoon on late days.

As I stood near a rural Indiana grade crossing to make this mage of Norfolk Southern steel slab train 61T rumbling past the farm fields near Greens Fork, I could hear one of those dryers in the distance.

That along with the wind blowing and steel wheels rolling on steel rails was the soundtrack for the afternoon.
