The second photo stop took place just north of Elk Park. Some of us wandered
out onto the foot bridge over the Animas. Others headed south to the small
pond on the east side of the track. This location is where most of the whistling
took place and the water provided some motion for my videos. Here is our
mixed train pulled by 315. Again I cheated and this is a reverse shot with
the engine working a little harder.
The second train pulled by 480 surprised us with this action as we wait
for the presidential special. We spent quite a bit of time at this stop.
The 473 pulling the presidential special provides some action along the
Animas. This is actually a forward shot as they really poured on the smoke
for this one.
