Remarks & Notes 
In Broad Pass, Alaska on December 22 I wouldn't say there are a lot of possibilities for train photos. With the limited daylight hours let alone sunshine not to mention the scarcity of trains, it really is like finding a needle in a haystack. So when I found out the Alaska Railroad had a plow train running to plow between Colorado and Cantwell on my day off I decided sure I will drive the 4 hours to see if I just might find that needle in the proverbial haystack. Sunrise was at 10:38, but never really made it over the mountain tops, Colorado was snowed in and not passable so I decided to wait the train out at Broad Pass. That is the image you see here. Sunset was at 15:10 so there wasn't much time. The train never did get any direct sun but that GP38/GP40 combo sure sounded good. I think it worked out for the most part.
