Hard Amarillo railway
Serendipity at Puente: I had time to spend a couple hours north of Amarillo in the morning while Miss C. caught up on her sleep. One photo I've been wanting to get for years is a shot of a train crossing the massive Canadian River bridge about 20 miles north of the city.
In an example of fortuitous railfan timing, just as soon as I had hiked into a suitable vantage point, a southbound loaded coal train arrived and rumbled over the bridge. These are the Distributbed Power locomotives, shoving hard against the rear of the train as it begins the steep climb out of the river valley.
Melrose at dusk. Light on the horizon at far right is another approaching eastbound.
Thanks for looking... check back in a couple days for a look at the Albuquerque RailRunners, and fall color along the Rio Grande.
