Remarks & Notes 
Patience is a Virtue

A short, unidentified intermodal train fills the center arc of the Horseshoe Curve above Altoona, PA. On the east leg, if you squint hard enough, you'll see the approaching westbound, train 21J, is lead by NS 1074, the Delaware-Lackawanna heritage unit.

I've been waiting to shoot Horseshoe Curve in peak fall colors for a couple years now (ever since getting my Mavic Pro). Somehow, the weather has managed to screw that up, either by being too cloudy, too windy, or raining. Patience finally paid off, though it's not the full blaze of glory I remember as a kid.
