Not really a race. The Union Pacific freight slows to stop as a BNSF intermodal charges up Cajon pass. Activity on this piece of railroad almost always seems heavy.

NKP 765 rest in the very first light on August 22, 2012 at Bellevue, Ohio. This days deadhead move was the only run without a diesel trailing.

Bellevue was home for most of Nickle Plate Roads Berks so she is right at home where she was 50 years before.

A event that hasnt happened since the 1970s. One of the biggest highlights of 2012 was shooting NKP 765 rounding Horseshoe Curve just west of Altoona, PA. I was one of a dozen railfans that set up at this spot including Norfolk Southern's official photographer and one of the editors of Trains magazine.

The other highlights for me was chasing ATSF3751 to the Grand Canyon and the heritage unit gathering at Spencer, NC.

This is the first of two trains the Durango and Silverton ran to Silverton on this day. This is the more typical angle and only 500 feet from this shot.

I am standing on the only rock that hangs out on this side of the tracks. A tiny cut almost. Behind me, the tracks take a sharp turn as it follow the Animas river, which, is two feet to my left and two hundred feet down!

Two BNSF stack trains meet and fly over each other at Frost, CA. I arrived no less than 10 minutes earlier. Talk about luck!
