Contrary to appearances, this image of Amtrak’s eastbound Lake Shore Limited was made in April.
No. 48 is running several hours late as it kicks up the snow in Berea, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. Snow in Northeast Ohio, even heavy snow, during April is not unusual.
I didn’t know that No. 48 was running late. I might have learned about it from a radio transmission or simply seeing an Amtrak train come around the bend.
We don’t always get this much snow in April, but it happens. The photo was made on April 7, 2007, and was scanned from a slide.
