Remarks & Notes 
A horizontal view of 13T creeping across the Portage Bridge in Letchworth State Park. I can't fit the upper falls and river below into the frame going horizontal, since I did not have a wide lens with me on this morning - that's what I get for not taking the camera bag with me. I had gone to the Castile Agway to pick up a load of feed and grabbed the camera to take along "just in case" I saw a train, since the Southern Tier Line runs right by the Agway. I got my load of feed and then checked the signals at Silver Springs and found a green board for an Eastbound. I then could hear the 13T calling signals not too far away, so I hastily ran down to the park, making it into the park just 10 minutes before 9am, which is when they start collecting the $8 entry fee. The train showed up just a few minutes later. I took vertical photos as the train crossed the bridge, and then quickly took a couple of horizontals before the lead unit was out of view. I like the way this one came out, with the exception of not being able to see all of the upper falls.
