Sometimes when you scan an old slide, it brings back the details of a shot during a railfanning adventure. My good friend David DeVault and I had taken a day off from work to head west to Kentucky and Tennessee to chase and photograph the CSX F-units pulling freight (the short-lived Detroit-Atlanta Roadrailer trains, R211 and R210). We caught northbound R210 earlier in the day with units 116 and 117, and then waited at Livingston, KY for R211--which we would chase all the way to Lafollette, TN before heading back home. The weather was absolutely crummy, with intermittent rain and heavy clouds. We both had to use Kodachrome 200--a slightly faster version of the famous Kodak film, but inherently grainy and with an affinity for red. When R211 departed the big yard at Corbin after a quick crew change, we sprinted ahead on the parallel road to Wofford--14 miles south. But, a northbound hopper train was dragging into the siding, so we were stuck behind traffic. We could hear R211 calling signals on our scanner, so we both realized we had to jump out and make a run for it if we were to catch a shot here. The hopper train's conductor in the caboose talked his engineer down to a stop so the cab would foul the crossing---thus keeping the gates down and auto traffic out of the way. David and I managed to reach this spot just moments ahead of the F-units as they came roaring around the curve. A small thinning of the clouds provided some brief light to improve the shot. It was an effort--and we would end up drenched before the day was over---but it sure was fun!
