Sweet shot, Bob. Those Cadillacs and foothill branches seem made for each other. She got a far slower-paced gig in this turn than her occasional calls to power the 'Sacramento Daylight' when GP9 3010 was in the shop or sister 3800 was unavailable.  We teen foamers 'way back then used to hope for 3800 first and 3822 second as relief power.  3800 had a Nathan M3 horn while 3822 had the "generic" Nathan P3. As if we'd be so picky these days given such an option, which we'll never have again. *sigh*

Can't decide which of these three is my favorite photo.  All very crisp and sharp.

This one has the edge in my mind:  The oak looks like it is about to drape over and envelop the approaching train.

Great composition!
