By sheer coincidence I was standing on this bridge over the railway line, when this slowly rumbled through ...

This is probably my most dramatic train shot. It's hard to believe that it has almost been 12 years since I captured this shot.
I was in Cajon Pass and noticed a thin column of smoke rising from the area of the run-away truck ramp for the south bound side of I-15. A bit later, the winds picked up, and that little bit of fire quickly grew and raced west. I happened to be in the right place at the right time when a train came up the tracks and came to a stop due to the fire. This photo shows the lead units as the train reverses down the tracks to a safer location. There were helper units with a crew on the back end which allowed for a safe retreat.

Wow, what capture and what a drama indeed. Keep it in a safe place, hopefully you will never be in the same situation again!.

Regards,
Rene.
