Nice shot Bud, I hope to get one similar in a few weeks!

Hope they got away - wonder if a system of warning horns would be practical, in advance of the train's arrival in certain locations. Cool shot, Tim!

Reminds me of the Polar Express when they get stopped in the movie. Great shot.

Great shot, Tim. You're awful brave standing there, as are the Elk with that SD75i charging at them!

I really like it! It is different!

They're definitely not the smartest members of the deer family! Very cool and very different from the norm. Nice stuff Tim.

Really different, really love it!

The Elks go railfanning! The bull staring at the camera is what really makes the picture for me. Maybe he was protecting his harem?

Ha ha! Looks as if they're eating the rocks instead of the disapeared grain! Great great picture Tim!

I have seen pigeons swoop down to the rails after a grain train passes...but never any beasts of the four legged variety. This is a first for me at least. Great capture Tim.

So, did they scatter before the train hit them?
Posted by Darrell Krueger on March 12, 2009 
Well done! The composition is excellent!
Posted by Tim Stevens on March 12, 2009 
Yes, they all made it across in time. The train was doing about 10mph and came about 3 feet away from ending the career of the bull staring at me!

I Think this one deserves a PCA. Very nice glad they all survived.

Great picture. Was it hard to get that one elk to pose like that? I can entirely imagine this as a commercial, with the bull in front saying something like, "This train behind me can move a ton of freight a hundred miles on one gallon of fuel...Blitzen! Leave some grain for others!"

Great composition. You got my PCA vote Tim!
Posted by Jim Thias on March 13, 2009 
Excellent catch, Tim.
Posted by Kevin Andrusia on March 13, 2009 
Absolutely fantastic shot...hopefully this isn't the "before" shot.

Is that elk junction?

And I thought RP.net didn't accept photos with the train out of focus ;). PCA from me.
