Fingers Crossed Then Pushing the Shutter Button

When I woke up on Sunday morning, I checked Heritage Units.com and saw that Norfolk Southern’s Interstate heritage unit had been spotted leading an unidentified intermodal train on the Elkhart, Indiana, rail camera.

I went to the site and rolled back to 2:21 a.m. to see it. To me it looked like it could be the 22K.  A later post still showed the train to be unknown. My fingers were crossed.

At 9:10 a.m. a post indicated the 8105 and its train were in Lakewood and designated as the 22K.

Could I finally get it in the lead with the lighting correct? When I left the house it was bright sun.

When I got to my spot behind the school buses in Painesville a huge bank of dark clouds appeared. Keeping my fingers crossed I was hoping.

As I heard a locomotive horn the sun was on the edge of the cloud bank. Success came at 10:50 a.m.
