Not a big deal, but I wonder if you could have shot a little later with the trees in the bkg?

I can try next time. The timing is a bit tricky as just out of the left of the frame, there is another group of trees on the close side of the tracks.

Cool shot, love the color!
That looks like a pair of SD70 locomotives - the flared radiator shrouds are the giveaway. I think Alaska uses SD70MACs.

The yellow in the trees & bushes matching the yellow on the train makes this a phantastic image.

Thanks! Nope, not a rope, I was hanging out of the door of the vista dome car. The train was only doing about 20mph so it was quite easy.
