Remarks & Notes 
After serving its purpose in Texas, UP 4141 leads the return train to Council Bluffs of 21 office cars across Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma during heavy rainfall. Six "Alien Bee" strobe lights were set up here for the photo, which would have illuminated the entire length of the bridge, but cold weather and rain caused three of them to malfunction. Ironically, the three most important ones did fire: The ones that highlighted the locomotives and the one on the display car that carried President George H. W. Bush to his final resting place.

See beautiful diesel and steam locomotives, including newly restored Big Boy #4014, pulling long trains of yellows cars reminiscent of the days when UP domeliners seemed to go Everywhere West.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
