Rather than writing up a "Train Log", I decided to try my hand at a Digital Publication. I hope this will be the first of many digital publications in the future. The goal is to produce 1-2 a year. This particular issues focuses on Tennessee Pass. Specifically, a trip over the pass on July 11, 2015. To view the first ColoradoRailfan digital magazine, click the image to the left. In addition to the publication, check out all the pictures (and more) by clicking here and going to the normal photo gallery.

Picture of the Week

Week Of Sunday, November 29, 2015

In a semi-rare move, BNSF sent the STCPDEN-01A down the Front Range Sub without an orange paint scheme in sight! In fact, the power was extremely unique, with a BNSF warbonnet leading, followed by brand new KCS SD70ACe (#4009) and the BNSF 7920. The train is on the approach to Boulder here, about a half mile north of the Foothills Parkway overpass. Photo taken on Thursday, February 9, 2006.

Denver's Ski Train: A Last Look 
Friday, February 3, 2012 -
Good Friday Afternoon-  
This winter is now the third winter season without a Ski Train running west out of Denver. The final run of the train was on Sunday, March 29th, 2009. The train had a very unceremonious ending. While I think most railfans figured the train was running on borrowed time, we also figured we'd have advanced warning of the final season. Yet less than two months after that last run, the train was sold and headed north to Canada.  
I have put together a show in tribute to the train. I loved shooting it and tried to get out at least one day each weekend that it ran. These pictures (with the exception of two) were taken between 2002 and 2009. There are two pictures in the "summer" section of the show that were taken in 1998. I'll bet you can figure out which two they are!  
I created two versions of the show. One that is just the slideshow and a second that has pop-up commentary. Most slides in this version have pop-ups indicating the location of the photo or other notes about the shot.  
This is a Photodex ProShow, so you do need a plugin to be able to watch it. The web browser plug-in is free and located near the bottom of this page:  
The show is nearly 20 minutes long, so grab a drink and get comfortable before watching! Here is the link:  
Hope you enjoy the show and have a great weekend.

About the Webmaster
Hello! My name is Kevin Morgan and I have been a Railfan as long as I can remember. Without question, my dad is to blame for this more than anyone. He never worked for a railroad, but he did get very much into photography (of trains, specifically) in the late 1970's. I was first in North Yard in Denver when I was a mere two weeks old!

Today, I am in my thirty-somethings and I have two daughters of my own. As they are getting older, their interest in trains is waning a bit in favor of more girlish things. I suppose this is inevitable, but the three of us will still go out together for some picture taking of our own. Every other week, they visit their grandparents for a night and that is frequently the time when I will try to get trackside for some shots.

In my professional life, I am a computer programmer. That worked out quite well as it allowed me to design and build my entire website. People who have asked me what program I used to create it, I respond with "a good text editor and a lot of time".

I did some film photography in the late 1990's, but a lack of money contributed to the relatively few pictures I did take. I got my first digital camera for Christmas in 2001. It was a Minota DImage and was more of a fancy point-and-shoot. My first digital SLR was a Canon D60 which I got in October 2002. Since then, I have been shooting all Canon. I've gone through a Canon Rebel XT, Canon 20D and Canon 40D since I got that D60 in 2002. My current equipment includes the Canon 40D, a Canon IS 28-135mm lens and a Canon L-Series IS 300mm fixed lens. The Rebel XT bit the dust not long ago and I have yet to replace it, so currently I only have a single camera body. My post-processing is done in Adobe Lightroom and/or Adobe Photoshop Elements. On most of my more-recent pictures, the camera EXIF information is available at the bottom of each page.

So perhaps we'll run in to each other trackside sometime! If you see me (and the girls!) out in our Jeep, stop and say hello.

Questions or comments, feel free to send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
