DRGW at Malta, CO

DRGW 3112 passes below Mt Elbert, the highest peak in Colorado at an elevation of 14,433 around 8am on Aug 7, 1986, on the then still active Tennessee Pass Line.
Yes, Dan, this is nearly the same location, but just a slightly elevated from Dale Sanders shot.

I gave this a 4, instead of a 5, because it seems a bit fuzzy. Could just be the scanning process though. A very nice shot indeed. Maybe someday we'll be able to shoot over TP again.
Yes scanned from slide, and that takes just a bit from the image! It also loses some sharpness on down sizing and converting to .jpg
Orginal is Kodachrome slide, and is sharper!
It gets a 10 from me! Two things I love...trains and nature. You blended
the two beautifully.
I'd rate it a 20 if I could! Absoultely Amazing!
