Remarks & Notes 
I like this image because it looks to me to be a believable recreation of the past. The mulltiple tracks, industry, car spotted on the siding, crossing, perhaps even the rather mundane composition lend it a sense of authenticity.....as if I wandered down to trackside back in the 50's. But actually it is 10:36 a.m. May 11, 2008. And perhaps the engine is a bit too shiny for the real thing. A Pete Lerro photo special. Nice to hear that the 261 will be back in service soon.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
