Daylight Arrival

Like in July when I watched the Daylight leave for Michigan, I chose to observe it locally rather than go on a big steam chase. The hassles of spending all day to get a couple of photos didn’t thrill me. My daughter Haley really wanted to see it in action again so the choice of staying local seemed to make more sense.

So where and how should I photograph the Daylight? I headed out along the Fallbridge sub just east of McLoughlin and set up in my favorite spot for pans. I have several hundred photos of the Daylight frozen in time, why not one of her in motion?

  1. Great capture! I especially like that the engineer is in focus rather than the nose of the locomotive.
