How about a different perspective for Byers Canyon? While most shots come from the south side of the rails, we are looking down on this eastbound from the north side of the rails just at the mouth of the east end of the canyon. You can see US-40 on the opposite side of the Colorado River. A few hundred feet more and the train will knock down the clear signal at the west switch of Sulphur.

Thanks Jim! And thanks for the shots showing the perspective. The climb was another reminder of the fact I'm not exactly in the shape of a championship athlete.

Ssss-weeet! That was ambitious to climb up there. Here's a shot I took, standing on that dirt road down there to the left of the lead unit's nose:

Or, for perspective on where Kevin had to climb to, see this shot:
