Remarks & Notes 
It's well after sunset and snow is beginning to fall on the evening of January 28, 2000. Amtrak No. 4, the Southwest Chief, leaves Wagon Mound, New Mexico in a dark cloud of snow. The mesa visible behind the train is Wagon Mound, because it looks like, . . . well, a horse-drawn covered wagon from a distance.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
