Eastbound Through Essex

Two units throttle up for their run up the grade to Summit, MT after they pass the yard and the Isaac Walton Inn.
Wow, I have almost the exact same photo. Sun going down behind the mountains and everything. There was a retired BNSF policeman standing on the bridge with us and he was upset watching the idiots put coins out on the tracks in front of the Inn.
Thanks guys. The shadows were pretty dark, so I had to get creative with this one to bring out some of the details. Not much traffic on that day - a Sunday. There were plenty of people at the Inn, but no one else out taking pics. This shot was at about 6 PM, so I expect the Foamers were all "Foamed" out by then!
