With an actual air temp of -7 degrees and a wind chill well below that, a late 337 makes the very cold final miles towards Waterloo at sunrise. With over 6600 feet of traffic bound for Iowa, this train will get yarded and switched out at Waterloo for the afternoon L571 local to Ft. Dodge. Independence is located 20 miles east of Waterloo.
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!)
