It had been nearly 6yrs since I had last been to the Grand Canyon Railway. While on that trip at a location called Quivero, I remember seeing a couple of cowboys on horses and wishing I could get close enough for some pictures. Unfortunately bad timing and a heavy thunderstorm prevented me from getting the shot I wanted. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=237054&nseq=16
In 2011, I got my second shot. During the Lerro Productions Charter, we were lucky enough to arrange to have these three cowboy actors to pose with the train. After a couple of runby attempts, we realized that the horses aren't use the loud "bark" of a steam engine and weren't happy about being close so we had to keep the train still. Needless to say, Im still happy with the results. - A Lerro Productions Event.
I've gone through the pix I have commented on or favorited and picked a few that I would frame and hang on the wall. So many good pix. This is the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to those who post all the great images on Railpix.
