There are a few places along my way to work that I’ve thought would make great places to get photos as the trains pass. I sometimes even get a chance to try it out. The other day, I got pretty lucky. Not only was I able to snag a Union Pacific train, I was able to try out a spot I had identified as a potentially great spot for photos.
As the train passes through the small town of Palmer Lake, I took these pictures of UP 8111.
