It's a great little website that will let you see the sun angle for any given spot at any given time (although it has trouble crossing time zones)

It's a great tool for exploring new locations without leaving your PC. Combine that with Google Maps and Google Street View and you can select some spots for in-person scouting or testing.

And yeah, one of the worst parts of summer train watching is the dead time between 9:30am and 4-5pm.

And be prepared for those days where nothing works. I was in Texas for my friend's wedding and spent 2 evenings at the Trinity Greenway Park waiting for a train to cross the river. 5 trains came over the 2 day period...all of them going against the light.
