Remarks & Notes 

Rounding Granite Point / Mini High Line / Elbert Creek, Denver and Rio Grande Western K-37 493 rounds the shelf track here above Shalona Lake. This charter train departed Durango under the cover of darkness and has arrived into Rockwood under a muted sunrise. While the Rio Grande never ran the big K-37's to Silverton, one or two did make the journey up this piece of trackage, only to end at Rockwood. Today, the oil-burning big jack is painted back into D&RGW, giving it a couple days to be used for the Trains Magazine Charter.

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.
