Thanks guys for your comments on the photo. The 'sex' in the photo is from the station name Essex in Essex, Ct. I didn't think in terms of the cut word being a problem because I knew it was Essex, but I see how those that didn't know that might have a question or two. Just so it's clear I have no problem with sex (like it alot), but I'll try a crop or maybe just clone it out and see how I like the result.

Two things. One, I am a total newbie and I know these are very amature photos. Two, I have never, in my life, taken a picture of a train. However, I do love antiques and discovered these the other day while checking cows at a distant pasture. I just stumbled upon this thread and thought it would be fun to post these. Since these are my only train pictures, they are also my best...

John37 -

Would you please tell me more about this train that runs through Niles canyon. Is it a weekend/tourist type train? How long has it been running there? What are it's typical arrival and departure points?

Years ago, when I lived in Fremont, I would drive through Niles can going to the valley, but I don't recall any steam locomotives.

Thanks -

Ron

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 :D 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 :oops: 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.
