Four Angles on the Same Freight—L427.

Mike Gardner and I stopped in at Hinsdale, Massachusetts and found CSX L427 (Portland, Maine via Pan Am to Selkirk< New York) stopped on the old Boston & Albany mainline waiting for a crew change.

This had a cool all-EMD locomotive consist; SD60M, SD40-2, SD60M. On a line that tends to be dominated by GE diesels, this symmetrical EMD arrangement is unusual.

We took the time to make photos from a variety of angles.

From the gazebo in Hinsdale, Massachusetts.
It brightened up briefly for this classic three quarter angle.
I actually exposed more than a dozen photos, but I like these the best.

Why settle for one view when you can have many?

    I really like the gazebo shot . It is a wonderfully framed photo ! Reminds me of the O . Winston Link steam portraits on the N&W in the 50s . Great catch !

  2. I love working with a subject that’s sitting still, unfortunately it’s a rare occurrence along the busy BNSF triple track out of Chicago.

    But you can take far too many pictures when unconstrained from the discipline of having to pay for film and processing!

    Why stop at 4 when you could have 4444!
