Remarks & Notes 
Hiked 2 miles in the snow.... Only one way was uphill. Snowshoeing uphill is challenge with train photography. When you get to the spot you are hot and sweaty. Then you have to sit out in the weather for the rest of the day. It can get cold but I have learned several ways to overcome those conditions throughout the years. In this scene the sun breaks amidst the storm for a few minutes UP 8508 grinds through with a heavy manifest destined for North Platte, NE.
