Remarks & Notes 
I've had this photo in my head for a few years, but haven't made the time to head out to Moab very often. Since I first wondered if it was possible, I've seen the train framed through Corona Arch in a few very nice photos on this site. But when the opportunity arose I wanted to make my own shot, and as the sun set to the west and the echoing roar of the SD70ACes slowly grew louder I was hopeful it would all come together with spectacular lighting and it sure did for a very memorable end to a great day of chasing in the red rocks of Moab.

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.
