What a Grande shot!
I couldn't have said that better myself, Ben!

Bridge on Animas River:
A couple of shots of the truss bridge that spans the Colorado River on the line between Grand Junction and Montrose, CO.
A bridge over the other Colorado River on the old SP Macaroni line in Wharton, Texas. The KCS plans to rebuild it soon by raising it a few feet and replacing some of the piers. I think the small span will also be replaced. Should have trains running over it again before summer.
Where're the rails ?
They put in a new bridge to the right on Steve's photo. Here is a shot of the same bridge looking from the other way. The train is going by to cross on the new bridge which would be on the left in this image. Steve's photo was probably taken from a passing train.
I was hanging out the window like a posessed foamer, snapping away as fast as my camera would allow.
