Remarks & Notes 
UP's celebrated Challenger number 3985 has dropped her fire (she was still a coal burner at the time) at Cheyenne after powering the Cheyenne-Laramie portion of a trip out of Denver. This was the 50th anniversary of the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club, and it was a tremendous excursion experience that weekend. But now, the train's riders are somewhere to the south heading back to Denver behind Centennial 6936. The big 4-6-6-4's steam pressure is slowly falling, and after the grates are shaken and the ashes dropped, she'll ease toward the turntable and return to her stall in the remaining section of the big roundhouse. It's been a long day, but one the photographer will never forget. Steam never gets old.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
