    The USA has some impressive sights and the bluffs of Utah are an example. Here a couple of GP9s haul a train of boxcars up towards the top of Soldier Summit, Provo to Helper as they pass a rock formation known as The Castle Gate.

    It's a busy day at the Western Pacific depot at Keddie, California in 1983. Here we see an Amtrak special led by an single F40PH, awaiting its passengers, of which are children attending a field trip. But it isn't all fun and games. On the other side of the depot, a small line of cars are being loaded by workers who have accepted cargo from customers around the area.
    Locos: U30B, F40PH, and F7.
    Route: Feather River Canyon

    Nice shot nonetheless, grats winner - but in as many weeks the community voted is the non winner - why do votes at all ?

    I know since several months ago it was announced votes dont make gospel anymore but ive seen weeklys where they still kinda do...

    Its confusing
