Remarks & Notes 
With just a few minutes light left and the Australian photographer trembling with excitement at the amazing sight in his viewfinder, BNSF 6780 and 6837, a pair of ES44C4s lead an eastbound train of empty container cars up the 1.2% grade between Scholle and Abo NM. This train was the last one I shot on what was the most incredible four hours of railfanning I have ever done. The sky was ablaze and the trains just kept coming up the hill in the last couple of hours. This train seems to appear about 5pm each day as it has done on four occasions over the past week.

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