Remarks & Notes 
As the sun sets behind the Wasatch Mountains, the constant battle against gravity continues as a train struggles up the 2.4% grade to the summit. Even with four big units up front and a DPU at the rear, this short train is barely making 15mph.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Album created by member Lee Kirchhoff

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 railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
