UP 9666 (CNW) at Dry Lake Nevada

With the silhouette of the old water tower beside it and the moon over head this three man crew (one a trainee) waits for the sixty mile van to pick them up.
The van driver is lost and has passed the crew on the freeway once, the crew continually turns on it ditch lights for the driver to see them in the mean time. Finally the van finds it way down the side road, this shot is taken as the van turns towards the train still lost in the dark but getting closer.
Built 11-1993 as C&NW 8602
