Railroad Photography! January in Shenandoah Junction, WV

One of my favorite railroad landscapes created last winter was at the Shenandoah Junction, West Virginia. I had traveled to the area with my dog Noah who comes along on all my railfanning trips these days. The weather changed from cloudy to rain to snow back to sunny and back to cloudy again. All in a matter of an hour or so.

While I was sitting in my car waiting for the next train to roar through the Shenandoah Junction, the sun peaked through the clouds. I saw the beauty of the sun on the railroad tracks and landscape and created this image.

As the weather changes in Virginia, I am learning to find more and more interesting adventures to do in the chillier and even colder weather. Thanks to a friend who I met at a church several years ago who absolutely loves the winter weather. She said, "if you look for the beauty in the winter, you will find it!" She was right. I was too busy freezing to death and trying to keep warm to notice it.

I enjoy traveling to Shenandoah Junction because of the likelihood of seeing trains. The railroad tracks in this image are used by CSX Transportation transversing east to west. Just west of this image is a bridge transversing the Norfolk Southern Railroad north and south.

Shenandoah Junction became the community it is because of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in the 1830s and it's a junction with the Norfolk and Western Railway at the center of the area.
