    These were used into the early 90's on Amtrak trains here in the NW, I think?

    Amtrak's Superliners were patterned on the Hi-Levels, including the Top of the Cap lounges. I don't know where the actual Santa Fe cars served besides the original Chief route, where they ran for Amtrak's first several years.

    That first one looks like Hermosa, WY on the west slope of Sherman Hill.

    What's really cool (other than the temp) is the amount of cinders on the ground, 10+ years after the fall of steam.

    That's quite the spectacular plume of smoke and steam! :)

    One could say that the weather forecast in the area would be "cloudy with a few flurries and a chance of soot".:D

    I wonder if this top one is Greeley, CO. Perhaps northbound from the east side of the tracks? I could be completely wrong, though! It looks vaguely familiar...
