A pair of SD60M's start pulling on a string of cars coming out of the Solar Spur on the Shafter Sub. Note the huge pile of salt behind the lead units. Talk about working at the salt mines!

Belated comment: what a great shot. I love the way the lead units stand out against the salt.  
 
I drove past the Great Salt Lake a couple of weeks ago but didn't see any trains unfortunately!

Excellent Kevin. The reflection almost looks too perfect.

Sweet catch - love the reflection! SD60M on the point no less - it's a keeper.
