After attempting to catch some trains on the local subdivisions and finding cloudy skies and common power, I decided to take a side trip off to BNSF Transcon around Ludlow and Amboy Californina.
Starting late in the day by the time I reached Ludlow in late afternoon. Trains were running 2 to 1 westbound. But the shadows were getting longer so photo ops were short lived.
But here's three photos I did take:

And a older Santa Fe Warbonnet on point of this westbound stack as it departs Ludlow.

Very nice photo. How long was the time exposure on that photo? Also, you have the same link twice, just to let you know. :wink:

oops,now how did I do that ? it's corrected now...
The crossing photo was taken with a Canon Digital Rebel, 28-80mm lense, exposure 5 seconds, at 200 ISO. Just moments before traffic appeared on both sides of the crossing.
