The Ashland Visitor'a Center could use that first image to draw railfans the the town.

For about 7 months in 1985, I drove past Ashland on I-95 twice a month. It was my loss for not driving through the town.

Thanks David it is a small collage town that if you want to watch trains you can sit watch up close .
Thanks Snowman
The more I look at this picture the more I see that I should have been on the other side of the tracks as the sun was more to the East as the freight was Southbound thus making it more backlit and not enough detail down the length of the train . What are some other opinions please

The sunny side of the train may have made a better 'classic' train shot but it may not have been as interesting to a non-railfan. The sunny side of the train would have missed the Visitor's Center and the friendly look with the people sitting on the bench outside the center. The large train is de-emphasized by the dark areas so you notice the Visitor's Center and the people around the center.
