snow squall

MRL helpers push a grain train westbound thru a late spring snow squll in south central Montana up toward the mountains.
This shot really deserves a rating of 11+ but the rating only goes up to 10. The setting is spectacular and getting the locos to hold still for photo must have taken time. Did you have to wait an hour or two to get this unusual shot? The consist of this train (including both locos and cars)is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This is the only time this string of L & C will occur ever and you were able to capture it. Congradulations on an opportunity well taken and shot. Peace and may the Lord look kindly upon your soul.
