    Scott, what kind of Diner(?) car was that in your vid? At 0.26, looks like an old Budd car.

    During yesterday's outing we spotted California Zephyr #5 stopped in Glenwood Canyon. How little did I know that they were getting ready to be met by #6. Had I known this I would have set up to catch the meet with my camera.

    Sometime later we would catch #5 meeting a UP coal train in Palisade, CO.

    These are what they are using for switchers these days.

    I wonder if they are still using bio-diesel in this one.

    Really nice pictures, everyone. Very nice.

    I'll humbly submit a few offerings... I'm afraid the focus isn't so great on some of these. I was learning to use my dad's DSLR...

    Ah-ha, that's where she's from. It was neat to see the car over here.

    Actually they are starting to slow down a bit here. Just ahead of them is a pretty good curve that will turn them into DeBeque Canyon.
