May 27, 1979
From a conversation with the train dispatcher the night before I knew that this train should be coming at Beverly right about sunrise, so when I camped out for the night at Beverly I had hopes it would all work out in the morning. Even so, I was extremely fortunate that the timings of train and sunrise were so perfectly synchronized. Especially considering there was just one eastbound train that day!
The wind howled all night (normal for Beverly, I suppose), so it was tough to sleep. At dawn I crawled out of my sleeping bag and cranked off this shot. Wow."
