Remarks & Notes 
What in the world is worth getting up at 4:30 am, in 20 degree weather? How about to ride a train to pretty much the middle of nowhere. A few minutes after sunrise in the Steptoe valley, Nevada Northern Railway #40 rumbles by with a mixed freight, just in time to catch the sun. The 106-year-old Baldwin 4-6-0 locomotive was repaired just a couple of days earlier for this trip.

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.
