Well, I have recently moved here to the Northern Colorado area. On my way out here from Baltimore (where I used to live) there weren't many trains to be seen until I got near my new city.
Here are a few pics that I snapped from my truck.

(I dont know who this engine belongs to)

Wow! C&NW and SP units! :shock: A CNW Dash 9 with a yard slug and a SD90MAC?!
Where were you when you shot that SD70M coming at you...? (And how fast was it moving?)

Sorry, but I am just learning about trains. So I don't know what you meant here...
Is the CNW train you talked about the white one with a green line on it?


Where were you when you shot that SD70M coming at you...? (And how fast was it moving?)

It was a small country road between Cheyenne, WY and Greeley, CO that cut across the tracks. The train was probably moving around 17MPH.
I was also moving (not standing still on the tracks like an idiot) so it was pretty safe.

Yes, CNW is yellow with the green lightning stripe (There was only a logo on the front of each locomotive). I was referring to the photo of the Operation Lifesaver unit with the little tiny thing (yard slug) and the front of the other locomotive in view. 8)

No offense, but that's probably not the best idea.

So you crossed the tracks when the train was that close... not a smart idea... :shock:

Well, the train isn't as close as it appears. I have a little bit of zoom on my camera.

The top photo is of a GM SD45 built in 1968. It is now owned by the Andersite Rock Railroad based out of Carr, CO. Hopefully this info is useful. How do you like CO?[/quote]
