Remarks & Notes 
What does springtime frequently look like in Colorado’s high country? A Union Pacific coal train drops down the two-percent grade just east of Tolland, Colorado, on May 1, 1999. Yes, May Day 1999 was a bit snowy, as can be seen by a white Continental Divide looming above the train, as two Southern Pacific GE AC4400CWs lead the eastbound across a trestle over Boulder Creek.

The reason railpictures.net has captured my imagination for so many years. Images of quality and distinction, in other words, amazing railroad photography.

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.
