Trains Next to the Highway

Posted on February 4th, 2012, by Michael Rountree

I travel up to my sister’s house often, and the route is up I-75 through Ohio. There are a few long stretched of this interstate which run parallel to a major rail mainline, but of course every time I drive it there is just nothing to see. Well, this past Christmas as I was driving up, I got lucky and found a train running slightly slower than me and in the same direction! Not only that, but I just happened to have my camera accessible. I was alone in the car, so it was kinda tense as I tried to fetch the camera, turn it one, aim it and take several shots, all while keeping some amount of attention on the road. Kids, don’t try this at home! But I did get a fairly good series of shots, so sit back and enjoy.
