A Gray Train on a Gray Day

I went out on Thursday (March 11) to shoot the Canadian. I decided to head west on Wilkes Avenue to get a little away from my normal shooting area. Variety is good, right?

There were some MOW crews at work on the north track around miles 8-10, including a pickup with a guy doing some grinding, ballast regulator 613-70, and another vehicle further east. They must have been wrapping things up, because the regulator and the other vehicle headed east at speed. See how fast this guy was going!

I waited in the mud for the Canadian to show. Soon enough, he passed me at mile 8-something.
