Sometimes train photography is about more than just the train. This cactus caught my eye, as well as the rapidly collapsing code line. I setup for this wide angle shot to try to incorporate all aspects of the scene into the frame.

Thanks for the comment and the botany lesson. And here I thought everything with a sharp, pokey end was a cactus! I've officially learned something for the day.

Nice shot! I like the B&W stuff for flavor. BTW that's a yucca, not a cactus. The yucca is actually a member of the lilly family, hard as that may be to believe (especially if you've ever backed into one!). The state flower of New Mexico, if anyone cares... :-)
