It is indeed the usual good work. One wonders, who did the contaminating and who is picking up the tab for the removal.
Posted by James Belmont on March 14, 2009 
Thank you folks for the kind compliments. The cause of the contaminated soil is the old Atlas Uranium mill built along the Colorado River during WWII. The mill shut down 40 years ago and the tailings were eventually capped. It was feared that contamination could find it's way into the river due to flash flooding, and the material had to be removed. I believe the cost to move the tailings will be funded by taxpayers. The private company relocating this material is Utah's Energy Solutions.

I love the Potash Branch Jim. I'm glad your long Friday trip was a success. That has got to be one of my favorite trains to chase on the continent. Thanks for sharing my friend.

Still has the old jointed rail though. Fantastic shot, i love how the engine is centered in between the two peaks and the contrast between the dark backlighting and the light cloud of dust from the ballast.

Nice image! The dust in the shadows really adds to the shot.
