Default Amtrak locomotive fire in Elyria, Ohio

This happened this morning on December 15, 2010. Attached is a link to a local news site that covered the story.

Do photographers for news outlets think having a badly unlevel shot is cool or something?



I find that really annoying and distracting.

Don't know... but I do have to say that before I started submitting here, horizon unlevel was something that I never even noticed (either on film or digital).

I'm amazed at how much better so many of my pics look when I straighten them out.

Would it be safe to assume that 112 was placed back in the constist when the NS rescue loco arrived, or would it have been moved to a siding to await an Amtrak rescue loco?

It's currently sitting on the spur for a recycling place just east of the Elyria station which was where the train stopped.

Here's a better picture of the Toasted Toaster. I took this on Friday in Toledo, train was running as R19.
