Monongahela H Unit in ‘Perfect Light’

Monday was another unusually warm fall day in Northeast Ohio. When I got word that the Monongahela heritage locomotive of Norfolk Southern was leading train 179 westbound on the Lake Erie District, I grabbed my camera and headed over to Riverside Drive in Painesville.

I caught it in perfect lighting at 3:30 p.m.

Train 179 originates in Buffalo (Bison Yard) and terminates in Irondale, Alabama (Ernest Norris Yard).

Along the way it stops to work six times in Ohio including in Conneaut, Bellevue, Columbus, Middletown, Sharonville and Cincinnati. It also works in Chattanooga, Tennessee,
