Remarks & Notes 
Looking like a Star Wars scene In February of 2006 the weather was no different from a typical Sierra Nevada Winter. In this scene the UP 604 pauses in Truckee, CA while the storm continues to dump. The new crew will board shortly to help keep the snow clear between the rails.

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.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, rainbows, and snow storms.

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!)
