Lighting Can Strike Twice When Railfan Good Fortune Finally Comes Your Way

For eight years the Reading Lines heritage locomotive of Norfolk Southern eluded the efforts of Ed Ribinskas to photograph it leading a train.

Then last Saturday his fortunes turned when NS No. 1067 led a westbound stack train through Cleveland.

Ed drove to Bedford to catch the SD70ACe under cloudy skies. But the weather didn’t bother him. He now had all 20 NS heritage locomotives leading a train.

Forty-eight hours later the 1067 was back in Northeast Ohio, this time leading the 22K eastward on the NS Lake Erie District just minutes from Ed’s home.

And this time the weather was good. The train is shown above crossing the bridge over the Grand River in Painesville. There is even a touch of fall foliage to book.
