Sunny Sunday With a Touch of Steam & Seafood

Last Sunday was a day that initially was forecast with ideal temperatures of upper 70s and brilliant sunshine.

I definitely wanted to take advantage of the ideal conditions. After our normal routines of breakfast, taking care of Penny, showering and getting dressed, I got out the cameras and backed the car out of the driveway about 11:15a.m. to start what turned into an enjoyable day.

I would make still photographs and Ursula would handle the video.

At about 1:15 p.m. we ended up at the 2-foot gauge Youngstown Steel Heritage/J&L Narrow Gauge Steam Railroad to capture three runs of Jones & Laughlin 0-4-0T No 58.

If we would have arrived earlier, I would have ridden. However, we got the photos and video that I wanted. Before the season ends I will be back for rides.

Here are some photographs from the last runs before 2 p.m.

After making these images, we headed north and decided to have an early dinner at Red Lobster in Ashtabula.

On the way home we drove through Perry village and saw the headlight of a Norfolk Southern eastbound. It was train 310 with BNSF power.
