Nice shot Mike! Great luck to have a meet right in front of you.

Lucky for the photo-line, the steamers are on the near rails!

Great photo! Looks like quite a lot of other people had the same idea as you to chase this train.

Awesome catch, PC vote here.

Wonderful picture. Best of seen so far of the 844/4449 joint event. Great lighting and I love the saturated colors.

Great shot Mike. The only thing that would make this shot perfect is a ferry at the dock in the background. This is a real winner.

Awesome meet and catch Mike.

Beautiful shot Mike! The color is amazing.

It also looks like someone from the 5427 was taking a peek out of the door seeing that its open.

Great shot Mike, My PCA pick

Nice work Mike!

Wow Mike you couldn't have picked a better spot to stand at. This is an amazing photo. Were both trains moving? I can't believe the amount of people chasing in the background. Once again, awesome photo.

Certainly deserving of at least some sort of wow award, and awe award, and classic award, and probably others. Congrats, and thanks.

In the distance, you have me in the photo---white t-shirt, next to the third car.

Very nice! I guess I should gone further north.

A Superb shot!

Mike - Wow you did do very nice with this shot! I smell POTW..... Voted.

Nice shot Mike! Perfect timing! PCA vote... :)

A well deserved POW. It is really a stunning image. Initially I thought too bad all the people in the picture, but now feel they actually add to the scene, since that was what it was all about: a modern public demonstration of historic engines, not a historic recreation. And it is great to see the UP844 operating with a non-native born UP steamer, since SP is now just as much a part of UP's heritage.

Congratulations on POTW. Quite a contrast between the modern Dash 9 and the steamers.

So you were the guy who was smart enough to tote along a step ladder. That was a great location, but you were the only one who had enough elevation to get the bay fully in the shot. Well done, sir. (From the guy in the green shirt at the extreme edge of the shot hoisting his still camera up to get every extra inch possible.) Jody Evans, CO

Wow, such a sweet photo. A step ladder was used? Very creative, indeed!

Old meets New. Epic shot, well done. Love the color.

Great catch, Mike! Congrats on the P.O.T.W. honor. It's well deserved.
Posted by Steve Lerro on May 24, 2007 
Excellent picture!
Posted by Carl Becker on May 26, 2007 
Sweet photo. Looks like you were the only one who caught the actual meet!

Four roads (well, sort of - UP, SP, BN, & ATSF) in one shot. POTW vote has been cast.

Steam+diesel=happy me
Posted by Zack Express on July 10, 2007 
The 844 was absolutely perfect by itself, then you have the daylight train behind (unless I err) and the colorful BNSF diesel to make this a most worthy photo.
