Entering the Shadows


Bort Road near North East, Pennsylvania, has long been one of my favorite locations to photograph Amtrak’s eastbound Lake Shore Limited.

There is a one-lane ancient bridge here that arches over the CSX Erie West Subdivision that Amtrak uses.

The sun had not been up all that long when No. 48 came charging past on a Sunday morning in early September 2016.

On the point is P42DC No. 12 followed by a still new Viewliner II baggage car, three Viewliner sleepers, two food service cars and five Amfleet II coaches.

The shadows of the bridge are playing on the nose of No. 12 as it approaches. But it won’t be here long because train 48 is doing track speed and has places to  go.
