  • Veterans 6920 and a moody Fall day on the CNO&TP in KY

    Saturday 10/18/14 The "Honoring Our Veterans" SD60E #6920 was the leader on Southbound NS 147 out of Cincinnati. The Forecast for the day had been "Mostly Sunny" all week, but yep...you guess it...nothing but clouds and even a little rain.

    Carmon & I had planned on going out shooting anyway, so we dived head first into the dark, moody weather and tried our luck with the 6920 and a few other trains. As many of you know, we are not scared off by bad weather, but on a cloudy day it might as well be pouring rain...but all we had was a little light drizzle...oh well. I think we did pretty good considering, and the bright colors on the 6920 looked pretty good against the muted colors of Fall.

    Below are a few teasers, and you can find the whole set in full size at this link >>>> NS Heritage Power and OCS in 2014 Photo Gallery by E.M. & Carmon Bell at pbase.com

    147 follows a string of other Southbounds into Danville, seen here at CP North Wye


    The bright colors of the 6920 blend right in with the color in the trees as the train comes by the block at DV Tower, on the North end of the yard at Danville, KY


    147 eases by the old CNO&TP Depot at Danville, KY.


    and late in the afternoon, 147 rolls South down the valley at Bowen, KY

      Shooting in crummy weather may not give the brightest pix, but it shows life as it really is. Good on you for getting out there!
