VIA November 2017 and April 2018 - A Life Chasing Trains

I joined a friend for a one way five day drive from Denver to Reno.  We paid a brief visit to the Georgetown Loop, and then followed the UP with stops at Evanston and Elko.  it was as much a sightseeing trip as a serious train chasing trip, but we got a few interesting photo ops.

Early in the morning an NS freight rumbles very slowly across the 142 year old Erie bridge in Letchworth park, while the completed new bridge shows in the background. A bit of Fall color hangs on. When I first saw the train I was convinced it was on the new bridge. The new bridge is largely completed but the approaches are not yet finished. According to folks who live nearby the new bridge is expected open around the first of the year.  November 10, 2017.
