This photo brought to you courtesy of Hurricane Irene!!! Taken shortly after Empire Service Train #281 arrived (The train with P32AC-DM #711 on the head end). This photo would otherwise not be possible in the evening as the train lead by P32 #709 in the background normally doesn't arrive until well after dark but because that train (which normally comes in as #283 and goes out as #284 the following morning) didn't run that day, that train set sat in Niagara Falls all day making this photo possible just before sunset on August 27th, 2011.
