Remarks & Notes 
I arrived at Harriman just as the train arrived and this was a real grab shot. But it has a dramatic quality that perhaps offsets the considerable technical faults. I had taken a previous shot around Emkay and then driven here in the snow. It was October so I was not really prepared for snow. So I gave up the chase here. Later I heard that I-80 had been closed, so maybe it was just as well.
