That's an incredible shot Frank. Well done.

I'll second that and vote for a PCA.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to get a high speed crash into untouched, ice covered snow. The southbound Adirondack just out of Canada fits this perfectly. Nice shot!

Beautiful shot. With flights canceled and vehicles stuck in snow, the trains just kept on running.

One awesome snow action shot Frank!
Posted by Ryan Parent on December 17, 2007 
You captured this one perfectly. Nice job Frank.

Catching a high-speed train hitting a virgin snowdrift in full sunshine is pure luck, but capturing an image such as this is pure genius. This shot screams "IMPACT" in every conceivable way. Well done! PCA coming your way.

Just one word sums it up: WOW
Posted by Mitch Goldman on December 17, 2007 
Wow! A passed by the thumb, but glad I came back to it. Phenominal stop action - can't recall ever seeing anything like it.

That's just awesome! Snow chunks flying at your lense * * * * * *

Awesome shot!!

A great idea, and wonderfully dramatic shot Frank. Very nice. Definitely POTW material, and a PC nominee. The other thing I love is it demonstrates one of the cardinal laws of railfanning: The best photos are always the ones where after the train passes, your up to your waist in something, laughing and wondering what the heck you were thinking. Hehe. Excellent image!!

Fantastic shot.

Sweet detail. Pieces of snow flying everywhere.
Posted by Pavel Rybin on December 18, 2007 
Wow. Mission imposible? No. :-) Fantastic shot, Frank. Very good. :-)
Posted by Tom Michele on December 18, 2007 
Great, wow, awesome and a dozen of other similar synonyms. Sure, luck involved, but, still you were ready to very well document a moment. And then you did it. How did you survive? What position to the rails were you? How well and safe was the engineer. Is this a safe operation. What distance was the snow-ice pack this deep? How did the loco's windshield wiper blades survive. Etc. Anyway, congrats and thanks.

I wonder what that looked like from inside the cab.

A snow explosion. Nice shot.
Posted by Scott McClarrinon on December 18, 2007 
That's superb! Now where is the train going from here... I'm guessing to your right?
Posted by Nscalemike on December 18, 2007 
Superb image and effort. I presume your camera survived?

Fandamntastic! PCA

Wonderful! Snow is one of so many factor that can interrupt any transportation except train.

Dare I ask what the shutter speed was to "freeze" the snow like that?
Posted by Kostyn Dragut on December 20, 2007 
Awesome picture and view Frank.Well done Frank.Thanks for share and great job.

You have my PCA vote and I will also second everything everyone else has said about this great shot.
Posted by Charlie Wood on December 21, 2007 
I caught this unit three days later, my shot wasn't this good though!
Posted by npapaletsos on December 29, 2007 
Superb action photo Frank. This is a trully spectacular photo.
Posted by Torsten Klose on January 26, 2008 
Wonderful shot, but what happened with the camera?
Posted by Ross Fotheringham on December 29, 2008 
DAMN! No wonder the front of those units are always dented! Glad this made PC as I would have missed it otherwise.
