497 ready to cross the trestle at Lobato on October 13, 2002.

497 heads across while 463 waits with the train.

463 ready to cross as soon as 497 clears.

463 bring the train across.

The double header continues it's climb as it heads towards the road crossing.

This is one of my favorite places on the line. With a heavy train you usually get some good stack talk and wheel slippage in this area especially when 463 is in action. The train winds around a couple of curves so you can watch it for awhile before moving on. Now it is on to Cresco.

Working hard heading towards Cumbres.
