July 25, 1997.
I’ve often liked to make detailed studies of equipment. On this day, George S. Pitarys, Bill Linley and I had been following a westward Cape Breton & Central Nova Scotia freight.
In the evening it stalled near Afton and had to double the hill. This made for ample opportunity to make photos.
At one point when the train was stopped, I used my N90S with a 28mm lens to expose this backlit study of an M630 that was second unit in the consist.
I like the image for its great contrast and its ability to distill the curves and lines of the Alco Century profile. It’s moody, dark, and all about Alco.
