With thanks to Cityslicker who gave me a great tour of the south end of the Bala sub (I owe you one, bud), chasing this O998 on a line with many meets was glorious - plenty of opportunities to leapfrog ahead for shots of a train that I classify as a 'never say never' train that actually happened. Your wildest imagination wouldn't have paired these three things together - the leader was more than enough to classify it as a "never" train - the Amtrak superliner? Priceless. 
With a meet at Pine Orchard with a northbound freight, we had the opportunity to get ahead - so chose this spot at Vandorf with a gaggle of other great Railfan friends who were out. The sun was almost playing ball here, and it was a mostly cloudy day so to get this much sun was actually a nice break. More to come..!
