Bringing Up The Rear

Hotchkiss, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: It will take both of these engines to pull the train once the coal has been loaded and they reverse direction. You can see, in the upper right corner, that the snow is making its way closer. There were a few flakes flying when I got back to the vehicle.

Thanks, Heidrun and Claire! Claire, I do understand
the problems, but in this area, coal mining is
the biggest (and best paying) employer. People
here see it as a way to feed their kids. It is
a dilemma.

I love trains! Nice photo (although the coal is problematic for those of us in the Northeast... we get the acid rain, mercury, etc that results from the coal-powered plants in the midwest. Sigh. End of soapbox)

Thank you, Gil and Bill! Yes, Bill and they will
need every bit of that power to pull this long
train when all those coal cars are full!
