Remarks & Notes 
A BNSF coal train grinds up the 2.2 percent grade of Mullan Pass approaching Weed, Montana, in the last sunlight of July 5, 2021. Lone EMD SD70ACe No. 9170 swirls amidst its own traction sand in a tiny slot of sunshine, while on the left, a mid-train set of manned Montana Rail Link helpers cut into the middle of the train add their horsepower to the struggle against gravity.

One artifact of the steam era that remains in use to this day; even modern AC traction locomotives need help on the biggest hills.

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.

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!)
