UP 5131 in Cajon

UP 5131 leads a stack train up Cajon Pass on the BNSF main.
Thanks for the comments. John, I think you have a good point. I was trying to crop it for posting (1024 X 768). I also think my perspective and the length of the train were working against me here in attempting to keep it in 1024 X 768 format. I might try resizing it to something around 1024 X 600.
Good !....I was the Communications technican for SP/UP in this area for 21 years, just retired this last oct.
Agreed a bit too much foreground, and I'd like to see a little more room in front of the engine before the edge of the frame.
I do like the scenery and the UP looks good to me. I stop in Cajon every time I go to CA so have a few pics of my own of the UP and BNSF in Cajon.
