A shot that I neglected, but tried to make up for
Title:  A shot that I neglected, but tried to make up for
Description:  This is a shot of an eb NS Coal Load crossing Sherman Creek in Duncannon Pa. I grew up in this area, and actively started shooting photo's in 1972 or so. Even tho the location is 18 miles or so from my childhood home, I never got a shot of this classic view. Well, this last time home, I tried to make up for it. Here's one of the images of about 3 or so trains that I managed to get here. The light wasn't real good, but ya work with what ya have to to try and make up for past faux-paux's.
