As I stated on FB, this image is simply stunning! And see, Mitch agrees and he is one of the gurus of steam photography. It is not very often that I look at a picture and say "holy crap, that is awesome.". Congrats!

Awesome shot!

Thank you, everyone. I appreciate the comments. The Friends of the SP 4449 really outdid themselves this weekend. Special thanks to the volunteers both past and present that made this possible. Especially to the volunteers and Amtrak crew members who worked hard all weekend to insure the guests on board had a pleasant trip. Kudos to Engineers Doyle and Bill that ran the engine.

Outstanding!! What a breath taking moment. Since I finally got my wife into railfanning she loves steam locomotives best. Of course this photo is the reason why! You have a great eye! I wish I could have seen the old SP Daylights in action back in the day. Oh to long for the good old days!! Thanks for sharing this!

Absolutely incredible, Leia! Seeing this I regret not journeying south to give chase. Congrats on the PCA! (And make sure you submit this to the FO4449 organization for their 2014 calendar -- it's a perfect cover shot.)

Thank you again to everyone for your kind comments, and to all those who voted for the PCA on this image. What a wonderful surprise.
