Railroad Photography: Norfolk Southern at Dusk in Bristow

"Norfolk Southern at Dusk in Bristow"
(C) Allen Pearson
Several years ago when I first to Bristow, I didn't know where the best places to watch trains were located. I knew where they were when I lived in the area around 20 years ago but those were now mostly Virginia Railway Express trains not the freights that I love to watch.

One evening I was driving through Bristow and noticed a train waiting near a crossing. It wasn't far from where I thought a crew station might be located. So, obviously, I had to pull over, park the car and wait for the train to come through.

The crew change happened and they were on their way. I was so excited to find a place where I could watch the trains! 

As the train came by where I was sitting, I was able to capture this image of a Norfolk Southern.

Where is your favorite place to photograph trains?
