The overcast skies that haunted Cleveland all day cleared off to the west just in time to provide some golden lighting for 67W at Battery Park.

Taken from the Westside of the Flats ... Same place Margaret Bourke-White once shot Cleveland from.. But they didn't have as many jet plane contrails in 1928.
I just love the way the contrails criss-crossed the sky over the city...

Norfolk Southern's heritage unit in tribute to the Nickel Plate Road leads mixed freight 145 across the drawbridge spanning the Cuyahoga River and the flats of Cleveland, formerly the NKP's mainline through the city. As if that wasn't enough Nickel Plate history, the nearest skyscraper directly above the cab of the 8100 is the Terminal Tower, which was the railroad's headquarters prior to being absorbed into the Norfolk and Western.

The Arcade in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, is a Victorian-era structure of two nine-story buildings, joined by a five-story arcade with a glass skylight spanning over 300 feet (91 m), along the four balconies. Erected in 1890, at a cost of $867,000, the Arcade opened on Memorial Day (May 31, 1890), and is identified as one of the earliest indoor shopping malls in the United States. The Arcade was modified in 1939, remodeling the Euclid Avenue entrance and adding some structural support.(From Wikipedia)
A blast furnace is one of the first steps of the integrated steel making process. Here, raw iron ore and coke are converted into molten metal.
Here's a fun fact I bet you didn't know : Rust runs in Paco's blood. My entire career has been spent working within the steel industry.
Today I looked out of the window and saw this great sky. White puffy and looking like mountian from a distance.
I drove Downtown to a few spots I know where the city of Cleveland can be seen up close or in a wide overview.
By the way I took this shot from almost the same spot that Margart Bourke-White took her famous shot of the Terminal Tower back in 1928
Part of the redevelopment of Cleveland Point. Is it any wonder that this is a popular spot.. yes I know that there is no one in this shot but it was the coldest morning of the year so far. 1 degree... and it WAS before the sun came up :)
There is a seafood restaurant around to the right of this shot that also sells fish and chips, so you can sit here in this park and enjoy a beautiful sea breeze on a hot balmy night or on a gorgeous winter's day. The famous lighthouse is behind where I stood to take this shot.
I have also written a guide to photographing this very popular part of the world. Please feel free to take a look and comment :)
309 passes through downtown Cleveland with the recently acquired SD40-2 number 3528 leading the way. This unit was originally built as BN 7149 in 1979 and later converted into one of their two experimental liquified natural gas units, along with the 7890. Even after the merger with the ATSF and Helm Leasing's acquisition of the engine, the 7149 remained in the special LNG scheme, albeit tattered, until becoming a part of the NS roster and being repainted early this year.
The Wabash and Southern heritage units team up to power 25V towards Chicago, reaching the west end of the Pennsy in Cleveland to continue west on the NYC.
