Hello once more -

The third of these has been posted before, but I can't resist including it with these two new ones – well, new scans anyway – as our little train approached and passed through Toltec Tunnel #2 just as the evening sun reached under the clouds.

Garfield Monument, just west of "Rock Tunnel": *

Exiting the East Portal of Tunnel #2.   On second thought, this is probably near the east end of Phantom Curve:

A mile or so farther east — technically far from my best, but still one of the all-time favorites among my own photos:

The adventure continued for a few more hours – including a backup move from Lava to Antonito during which I stood on the rear platform of the caboose (actually the front of the train) using a pie tin to reflect the light of a lantern onto the track ahead.  The long day was capped off by the whole gang of us helping to toss the ties out of the gons, and finally collapsing in the caboose at around 2:00 a.m. . . .
