Sunrise over McEwen. On the first day of the 2018 Sumpter Valley fall photo event, the trains faced east. The sunrise at McEwen Station is essentially aligned with the right-of-way, so first light is just spectacular and tailor-made for a photo op. Here, Eccles Lumber Heisler #3 and Sumpter Valley Mikado #19 await departure at the McEwen Depot, just moments after the sun fell on the railhead. Both trains appear headed for Baker City, a little over 20 miles to the east, but of course, that's no longer possible, because the trackage of the reconstructed Sumpter Valley Railroad dead-ends just 100 ft. or so behind my camera position.
