After getting a late start this morning, I decided to head down to Fostoria to get some train pictures. Sadly, I think I got too late of a start.
As I was coming in, I saw this train getting ready to approach the diamonds. I had just enough time to get my camera out to get pictures. I would have preferred the spot where I could get the straight on shot, but this isn't too bad.
I kind of like the looks of these engines.
And it wasn't too long before it passed me.
I misread the sounds of the horns for this one, so I wasn't really in position to get better pictures of it. It seemed like it was pretty slow, so I decided to head back.
I managed to get back in time to catch the Wolverine that passes Ypsilanti around 6:30 or so. The lighting was just about perfect too.
I was able to catch it in the almost golden light.
I was able to catch a startled robin in this shot.
And it passes the depot building.
As I was looking at the rails, I noticed what appeared to be date stamps for the steel. This one appears to have been built in 1940.
