Remarks & Notes 
Creating a spectacle! The cell phones come out as UP 4014 departs the yard in Evanston, WY in spectacular fashion, headed for Rock Springs, Rawlins, Laramie and eventually, Cheyenne.

Although many of the photographers had elected to forego the departure shot here and headed out to their first run-by locations, a pretty good crowd still remained, most of them locals. Although there were only a few people in my shot, there was a large group of people just behind me, not to mentioned several drones in the air, catching the action. The chase associated with the run from Evanston to Rock Springs was FAR less frenetic than the run from Ogden to Evanston the previous day. With the tracks no longer running parallel to the interstate, and the train taking a much more circuitous route, there was plenty of time for chasers to make it to multiple spots, and the spots were typically very wide open, offering a wide variety of angles, usually with very few interlopers in the scene. On this particular day, I shot 5 locations, and I'm not an experienced chaser at all. Take away the pacers and mobs of curious locals that we saw the day before, and the Big Boy chase through Wyoming was actually pretty enjoyable.
