Remarks & Notes 
Railfanning is all about luck, and today... luck was definitely on my side. After getting pelted by heavy rain and hail for a few minutes, the sound of the RBBB Circus Train could be heard and the sun came out. However, the train was going so slow it ended up stalling out in the only open spot along the trees next to the tracks. As the train stopped, a rainbow appeared. The crew put the second motor online and proceeded ahead to Pinecliffe, Colorado to meet the eastbound Amtrak. The train is stopped at the daylighted Tunnel 28 and will soon enter Tunnel 29 on June 13, 2016.

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.
