The Apache's Last Stand

I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to shoot the last great Alco show in the west. Back in May of 2012 I went on an epic week long tour of the west with three friends centered around chasing the 3751's journey to and from the Grand Canyon. But, of course, we railfanned much of the BNSF transcon and the Phoenix Sub as well. While in Holbrook we were extremely lucky to run into the once weekly "Blue Looper" coal train heading to the Cataylst Mill. This train would only run for two more months until the mill shut down.

But on this day all was right with the world as a brace of six 4-motor MLWs lug the heavy coal train around the S-curves approaching the end of their 38 mile run.
