I took this image the day after my train ride on the Cumbres & Toltec railroad. I was chasing it and getting shots at different locations. This image was taken as it is on it's way to Windy Point. The grade here does not look steep but it has to climb several feet to the top and into Cumbres Pass. The fireman must be shoveling in coal at this point to make sure the locomotive has enough steam power to make it up the hill since there is so much coal dust in the smoke. It's dark after it's first shoveled in.
