So, let's see your favorite OCS or other rare executive move that you've been able to photograph. Any time period is welcomed!

Since I've only had the opportunity to photograph one OCS train, that being the NS F's operating under NS 955 a few weeks ago, I guess they'd be my favorite, thus far.

Seems like the only OCS I can catch is the NS one (keep missing the CSX one the rare times it gets close to me). I've gotten it at several different locations and times but one of the neater ones was after a dreary, rainy, cloudy afternoon of chasing it through Ohio I got lucky with the sun peaking out for the last possible shot of the day:

I've only caught the CSX OCS but at the time my camera was out for repair and all i had was a film camera, good enough for me, but not for RP next i'll get it. They were coming back from saratoga springs in upstate NY

Living in Pittsburgh means I've been spoiled when it comes to the NS OCS. I've photographed it numerous times over the last few years and probably passed up just as many, if not more opportunities.

On the other hand, I haven't had much luck with CSX. this was the only time I've ever photographed the train.

I've also done pretty well catching the NS business train. I've only seen the CSX biz train in the middle of the night.

I'm usually at work when the OCS decides to run by. Obviously, I called off that day, haha.

I've gotten photos of the CSX OCS, but not RP material last time I checked. I've skipped school both times the OCS came to town in 2009! =D
