Sunrise at Yeomans

It is a week before Christmas in 2000 and bitterly cold. Someone said the air temperature was 8 degrees.

I was aboard Wheeling & Lake Erie train 340 to gather information to use in an article I would later write about the railroad for Trains magazine.

We’re sitting at Yeomans just outside of Bellevue as the sun is rising under cloudy skies.

A little further down the road we would pass through a snow squall but by the time we reached Spencer the clouds had cleared and sunny skies prevailed.

In case you are wondering, the locomotive is a leased Montana Rail Link SD40-2XR. For a time back then the Wheeling has a small fleet of MRL units.
