261 in the passing lane!

This is impromptu snapshot taken from the backseat of my car as we paced the 261 and train southbound down Roosevelt street in Clinton, IA last summer. We had chased the train to Clinton but were done for the day until we noticed the train pacing us one block over. We made some quick moves and were able to jump into the line of cars and get several shots in the three-block stretch of street trackage. I think this shot exemplifies street running.
