Remarks & Notes 
A Wing Man... The sound of the quietness of downtown Truckee at sunrise is broken by the sounds of two of UP's finest. An ES44AC and a SD70M tackle the monstrous grade of Donner Pass. The roaring sound of the GE and EMD motors can tell you that they're giving it all they got, try to pull this 6,300 foot long train over the High Sierras to the ports of Oakland. This is mountain railroading!

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.

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!)

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
