Remarks & Notes 
I had grand plans this afternoon to catch the eastbound California Zephyr as it rounded the curve at Crescent amid snow-laden pines with a glorious sunset over the continental divide in the background. But clouds moved in as the sun sank toward the horizon, and that plan was busted. So instead I opted to scramble up the slippery rock outcropping near Pinecliffe. Not wanting to shoot the same "looking down on train" shot I've done from here before, I searched for a new composition. Before long the short train was gliding between rocky walls far below me, the snow cover deadening the sounds but enhancing the colors as passengers no doubt looked out their windows, enjoying the scenery in the fading evening light.

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.

Railroading is a 24 hour a day business, that never sleep. From sunset to sunrise the railroad must run. These image are taken by some of the best rail photographer out their.

America's Passenger Train. While some feel passenger equipment now looks all the same, the scenery is still breath taking and the locomotives and equipment look great.

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!)
