A sunny Saturday in June 1997 found me at the west switch of Leyden (UP Moffat Tunnel Sub). At this point, the Ski Train was still running with the three Rio Grande GP60s (3154, 3155 and UP 5702).

On this afternoon, the train had been specially chartered (I do not recall by whom or for what purpose). The train just met an eastbound coal load and is charging west in the afternoon sun. A hawk (or falcon? I'm not a bird expert!) circles around above the train, appreciating its beauty. Or, you might suggest it is simply looking for a meal...
