Date taken: January 17, 2000
Location: Alliance Depot, Alliance, Ohio
Comments: The depot at Alliance provided very close parking for rail fanning.  I rolled in about 1:30 a.m. and sleep in my van until friend Carl Luther woke me up at 8:00 a.m.  Although it was cold (20-30 degrees), skies were clear and this served as a great backdrop for some rail photos.

I came to Alliance to try to catch an Alaska Railroad SD70MAC assembled at Altoona, PA and being shipped to Seattle, WA.  Unfortunately, it came through several days after I left.  I still had a great rail fanning experience plus some great camaraderie with Carl Luther.
