Circus Train 3-20-17: NS #047 @ Gainesville, VA

After spending the whole day shivering with anticipation, and then three hours sitting in the dark after work, I caught the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Blue Unit circus train as it made it's way from Trenton, NJ to Richmond, VA, seen here passing through Gainesville, VA. The train would take the siding to meet 24Q before continuing down to Bristow for a crew change, then on to the state capital for a weekend's run of shows.

This was my first capture with my new video camera, which suddenly decided to go haywire on the autofocus moments before the train showed up. For manual focus, in the dark, first time using the camera, I think this turned out okay!
