AMTK 364 Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
Amtrak's #8, The Empire Builder, is about 7 hours late due mostly to the below zero temperatures. The operator was someone I had talked to before taking the shot and he asked if I would send him a copy (which I did). You can see him in the window. The train seemed to be going very fast as it went by. As can be seen, the signal on the left has been passed but still hasn't fallen.

Robert Anderson General Great winter shot and a testament to the speed here. Home board semaphore is just starting down. Late indeed,due by here in early am,the sun would be on the fireman's side flank instead. Earned those ribbons.Very well done. 9/20/2018 11:57:58 PM
