That Galloping Goose is quite the unit. Where was that taken if you don't mind?
I got lucky on that one. I was on a "riding around the Rockies" trip and I passed through Chama. I saw the rail yard and shot the 487 and a number of other things (like constructs and buildings). I continued on to Cumbres Pass and as I was driving by, with no intention to stop, I noticed the rail station and a single car in the parking lot. I pulled in to get a few shots of the station and the guy in the car got out and asked if I knew when the Galloping Goose and 315 were due to arrive. I told him that I didn't even know what those were and he explained that they were on a commemorative run (if I remember right) and they were running late. Within an hour a large number of cars and pickups barreled into the station and photographers and rail fans went everywhere. Not long after that the Galloping Goose came in followed by the C&T 315. I got real lucky...
Here's a vid if the UP 844 leaving Bay City. Notice how it ends
I put the video camera on the rear wheel of my truck so I could shoot stills and when the train went by I was so fired up to get to the next crossing (it really moves on down the rails so I knew that I needed to get going) that i forgot my video camera. I didn't remember it until I was set up 30 miles down the road. I thought for sure it was crushed or someone picked it up. I think trains bring me good luck.
