Mission Impossible! If you choose to accept, find a scenic location along the 4449's route, where no other photographers will be found. I accepted and knew just the spot. Only a half hour hike down and 45 minutes back up. The photo worked out, but the challenge failed, 2 other photographers appeared shortly after my arrival. Thanks to Doyle and all the other Friends of the 4449 for the chance to shoot the train again.
