Looks More Like January Than March

On March 16, 2013, which was a day of the train show at Lake Land College in Kirtland, Craig Sanders and I started  out in Perry in extreme winter conditions as a lake effect squall dumped heavy snow on the area.

We were fortunate to get great photos in a 24-minute span, which included a late Amtrak No. 48. The top image of a Norfolk Southern train illustrates the fierce elements.

Amtrak’s eastbound Lake Shore Limited showed up at 8:42 a.m. and a CSX eastbound came along at 8:51 a.m.

We then retreated to the warm car. Later we would catch a train Painesville before heading to the rain show to work the Akron Railroad Club’s table. By then the snow had stopped.
