I can't stand it when railroads put helper units on the wrong way! True, it is completely irrelevant as far as the operation of the train goes, but I'd prefer to see a cab and not the tail end of a unit as the train is leaving me! Regardless, a single C44-9W helps push on the back of the HLAUDEN as it approaches Boulder with the Flatirons in the background.

Hi Kevin,  
Although you say you don't like that view of a loco I have to tell you that, apart from a model loco, that is the first time I have seen a pic of the rear of that type of loco. So I am pleased that you did not reject it.  
 
It is much the same with preserved steam locos (maybe it only applies to UK photographers) where the more black smoke emitted from the funnel the better the pic. Maybe, but all it proves to railroad aficionados is that the loco is being driven poorly.  
 
Best wishes, Alan, South Devon UK
