Marias Pass in known for heavy snow and my recent trip there didn't disappoint. I had shot the pass in spring, summer and fall but never winter. The Izaak Walton was a busy place with skiers taking advantage of all the groomed cross country trails. The F45 is a former ATSF unit made to look like GN's F45s that called this area home (you can stay inside the unit if your budget allows).
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
