Winding through the curves headed towards the west end of Shed 10
While waiting for a westbound, I found this spectacular view made from the low setting sun
Stopped at Roseville for a crew change, the red signals glow on the side of the train
The unit was set out on the spur at Boca, so I set my truck up for the lighting, grabbed my UP lantern and posed for my own shot. It was a very very cold night!!!
My first flagged unit while home on leave from my 1st year in Korea
Having passed through tunnel #3, and by daylighted tunnel #4, BN 9287 leads this "southbound through Cliff.
The flanger passes #5 at Truckee to clear the rails atop the "snowy" summit
Waiting for authority to leave the MOW yard to clear the rails at higher elevations. That aint rain!!
Westbound z at Cisco....notice the train in the shadows-the manifest is waiting for the z as well as one eastbound before continuing westward
Numberboards provide the subject as the moon gleams in the background
Glinting accross the famous bridge at Cienega Creek
Another not so typical view from Cienega Creek
Westbound amtrak working past just another weapon the MOW uses for snow removal on Donner.
A pose by the Colfax helpers while cutting out near the summit
Just another flanger shot.....but with beautiful fres snow blanketing everything, and a break from the heavy snowfall
