Photo of Empty Coal Train @ Wachusett Curve From 45.6 Feet
Empty Coal Train @ Wachusett Curve From 45.6 Feet

"Sky Rails 2" took to the air in 15 to as high 20 mph wind gusts to capture the empty coal train that was canned at Wachusett Curve in Fitchburg on Sunday morning 10/26 from a height of 45.6 feet. The power lash-up had six NS units, #1118, 8836, 7552, 8845, 3491, and 8361.
One bad thing about shooting at the curve is that there are always trucks and trailers parked at the edge of the parking lot which are hard to keep out of the photo.
