Southwest Chief Eastbound at MP58.25

After waiting and waiting for the NS Maersk locomotive to roll west into LA, our railfan group retreated to MP 58.25 with the intent of seeing the Southwest Chief on Cajon Pass.
Two of the group decided to attempt a bulb exposure of several minutes. This image is the results of those thoughts.

Canon A-1, 28mm lens. f2.8 for 'several minutes'.
Kodak Portra 160NC print film. Processing by Kodak.
Photo CD option, then image file processed with PhotoImpact software.
I love the night shots. They're a lot of work for the photographer, thanks for sharing this one.

Wow Jeff, this must be the one that you mentioned last week? I had not seen this one before. Excellent as always. Is this from hill 582?
