Remarks & Notes 
The benefits of bad weather......Thinking it could be my last chance in early 2020 to see a train in falling snow, I took a page from the recent Social Distancing manual and went out along Central Maine & Quebec's Searsport Branch after work on March 30th. Living right up the hill from Milepost 16 in Frankfort, Maine, I needed about a half hour to hike up to MP 17.5 near Marsh Stream and wait for the day's #211 to return from the shoreline. Once there, the only sound was of wet snow falling heavy on the nearby ROW and trees. Hidden in my thoughts for a spell under a patch of Hemlocks while keeping the camera dry, a distant horn nearly ten miles South broke me out of my trance. I'd still have over twenty minutes of waiting, but the snow had continued and picked up even more by the time the train reached my "home" crossing at West Hill and MP 16. I was low on light by the time GP38-3s 3810 and 3812 led their shortish train past me on their way back to base. If it had been sunny instead, I wouldn't even have bothered venturing out. I was happy I had taken what Mother Nature offered up this day even with the half hour walk back.
