CSX 5401 Thunders Through Downtown
Title:  CSX 5401 Thunders Through Downtown
Description:  This photo was really only possible thanks to work on the A Line which closed almost all of the grade crossings in downtown Rocky Mount (only two were open) meaning there were almost no cars in downtown. Some other rail photo site rejected this due to being "oversharpened" whatever that means (seriously, I have no idea). Anyway, I've been trying to get a good shot of a train with the People's National Bank Building for a while - its a hard shot to get because of the lighting and shadows in downtown Rocky Mount - you really only have about an hour window with the tracks well lit before the shadows cover them - getting more of the building would be nice, but this worked out pretty good as is.
