NS "Go Rail" unit on 11J

(Train sightings on 1-10-15.) 

Sometimes one has to take what is given to them when photographing a specific subject. Case in point is the scenario that presented itself to me on Saturday (December 10) when I hoped to photograph NS's 6963, a one of a kind unit honoring the Go Rail organization. This organization mobilizes support for policies that would lead to more freight moving by rail and opposition to policies that would limit the freight railroads’ ability to meet growing freight demand. Unfortunately the location did not provide the ideal conditions necessary to get a pleasing image. My best chance was to get a panning view as the 11J passed by my location in Three Bridges, NJ as the second unit. Oh well this image is better than no image, wouldn't you agree?
