Snake Train

As I was climbing a mountain yesterday, I loved this view of a very long train snaking its way through the pass.
On the original photo you can see it's carrying coal. It's my entry for Our World Tuesday this week.

  1. That train is really amazing. It must be really long the fact it is so small and so long I can only imagine how huge it is up close.

  6. That's a cool shot. I worked in Wyoming two summers for coal mines, and used to see those long coal trains all the time.

  8. Does it bite? Is it lethal? That head looks vicious.
    Don't think I would like to wait at a level crossing for it to pass.

  10. That is a very very long train! I didn't know there are trains that long. But i can't imagine why they have to make the path circuitous, not just a straight or with a few curves! I wonder if there are architectural or energy explanations for those. I will do it as straight as possible for efficiency, i suppose.

  11. I love this wonderful picture showing Colorado's charms ... as well as a terrific train. (We grew up and spent our first few years together in Asotin County, Washington, one of the few counties (maybe the only one, for all I know) that has NO railroad tracks. So, for this reason I guess, we are still fairly fascinated with trains and even usually don't mind waiting at RR crossings.

  14. Fantastic photo Al!
    I see long trains all the time in the desert, but they don't usually snake around like this. It is beautiful...

  15. Oh, this is extraordinary! And the railway runs diagonally to the road, how fun! Makes me start to wonder, which was built first?... :)
