Well, I got up early this morning and headed out to Blue Mountain Road in hopes of catching an Eastbound in the early morning light and fresh snow. Alas! The only train I caught in the 2 to 3 hours I was out and about was an eastbound coal train well before daylight. After catching a Hi-railer, I decided to call no joy, and head back.
Not wanting to head back empty-handed, I decided to swing down through Golden on the way back and see if I could catch the Beer Run. I did find him, and got this shot. I was hoping to follow him back into Arvada, but there was a switch job out on the line, so the Beer Run had to wait. I had to get back to take care of letting Oscar and Tiki out, so this was the only shot of the morning (Doh! I hate that.)
I'm not thrilled about this shot. It seems a little cluttered, and the train is mostly in the shadows (I had a couple photo locations with curves in the opposite direction planned, but never got to shoot at them). Oh well, I guess one shot is better than none (especially given the number of shots I haven't taken lately!)
I guess there's always tomorrow!
