Freight Trains

Trains overhead while walking with a friend on Heritage Trail Pittsburgh along the Allegheny River, Monday morning. I like the sound of a train whistle.

What a surprise to hear the train coming overhead
Metal wheels screeching on the metal tracks
Find the shopping cart

And Saturday night at Sunset- in Ohio. We crossed the tracks just before the red lights flashed and the gates came down. We pulled in the adjacent lot. I got out and filmed the freight train-a short one. It’s almost 2 and a half minutes, start to finish, which is a short freight train.

Duquesne Incline Still in Service

Public transportation still running in the city.

Photographed Tuesday morning from the Duquesne Incline Platform. No one else was there

I’d seen the fog over city as I crossed Liberty Bridge. It had lifted when I arrived after my drive.

I’d gotten the call that my iPad was ready for pick up after being repaired. It’s been there for weeks.  To get it or not was the question.  I paid over the phone and only Shannon was there working as they Tastar Data Systems opened Tuesday morning at 9. I debated whether I should drive over to Library Road or not but decided to have the iPad at home in my possession again. Face timing family and friends.

Sheltering in place makes you appreciate what one took for granted before. Running errands.

 Our three rivers.

Allegheny River and the Monongahela River meet at the Point to form the Ohio River.
