Love this shot Kevin! Very dynamic. It really captures the ruggness of the area and of railroading in general. I like how it incorperates the rock fence and line poles, the ties off to the side, the steep rocky canyon and river. And besides the nice framing of the locos the contents of the train (coal, rail, lumber) add to is as well.
