    beautiful photos. You can almost feel the ground shudder under the mass of these trains. I love the shot of the SD40-2. A locomotive that was built 30 some-odd years ago, that probably has more than a million miles on it, and about that many miles of wear-and-tear, leading a GEVO. Shows you that these girls can still pull their worth.

    Nope! Thanks to the WP's engineering, the ruling grade through the Feather River Canyon is limited to 1%.

    Nice shots.
