"Darling of a GEVO" in first light - February 2008 Photo Assignme

BNSF 7559, a brand new ES44DC, leads a short manifest eastbound in first light at Darling, AZ on February 2, 2008.with the snow covered San Francisco peaks in the background.
Thanks for all of the positive comments and awesome ratings everyone!
Two-Tone: Yes, we picked up SRY384 from Lost Wages the night before and highballed for Flagstaff. After overnighting there, we headed east to Darling, arriving just as an eastbound was approaching. The sunrise virtually followed the eastbound up to us!! This train was actually another eastbound that was following about 10 minutes behind the first one.
