Remarks & Notes 
Tunnel District A very heavy westbound manifest for Grand Junction, Colorado crawls thru the most challenging portion of the Moffat Road. There is no place else on the Moffat Road that challenges a train like the 3 miles below Crescent. The tunnels, grades and curves are the reason Rio Grande bought so many Tunnel Motor SD40T-2s. The head-end locomotives are on a short section of 2.5% while the rest of the train is stretched out on a mostly compensated 2%. Between Tunnels 15 and 14 above long shadows is one of two DPU motors shoving hard into the heavy tonnage train.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.
