What a great perspective of railroading on another continent. Nice work, Jean-Marc.

One can hardly imagine the dificulty in getting these shots. Merry Christmass Mr Frybourg and Mr Fisher. And thankyou RailPictures.Net

We're running out of superlatives to describe the images you've captured on this trip, Jean-Marc!

That's amazing. One of the most spectacular photos I've ever seen.

Stunning terrain, and a wonderful use of backlighting and light/shadow interplay to portray it. Fantastic photo!

Well done on a richly-deserved PotW, Jean-Marc - a great series of photos from an area rarely visited by railfans. It must be even more satisfying when you have to put in the effort to get to the locations. Even I'm looking forward to your next trip!!

How dangerous!

The thumbnail almost gave the illusion that there was a train rolling down the side of the cliff.

This is a fine tribute to the duribility of a rail line. The statement, photo of the week, is too mild. Photo of the month or more I would say. Jean-Marc ,this one blew my socks off.

While most of the photos in this series are favorites for me, this is one of my all-time Favorite Photos! The lighting, the colors, the terrain. No place for a derailment, for sure! The train crews (and the photographer) must have iron stomachs. Much of the terrain pictured in this series make Otto Mears' Rio Grande Southern, David Moffat's Moffat Road and General Palmer's Rio Grande seem like railroads in the sand dunes at Crawford Hill! And the photographer is one of the all-time greats in my book. Keep them coming, man!

This photo was the wallpaper on Bing's home page this morning! I recognized it right away. It had several captions as you moused over the image: "And you thought your commute was rough," "This is where NASA goes when they need a Mars landscape simulation," "Tenuous hillside tracks and all's a scenic ride," and "It'd be one thing if the locomotive were transporting teddy bears and pillows. This cargo's not so friendly."
