CSX 8519 Railroad Locomotive.

I had to stop for this CSX locomotive at two railroad crossings while driving home tonight. The second time I was in front of the queue and had the chance to quickly get the Leica I carry in the car out and get a snapshot. Converted to B&W with NIK Silver Efex Pro 2. Let me know if the image is too dark.
