Steam Train Union Pacific 844 on an excursion from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and back to Wyoming.
This picture was taken in Colorado. You can see a few of the train chasers beween the train and the pine tree.
THis Southern Pacific engine was a beautiful contrast to the black and yellow train. It almost reminds me of the daylight express colors.
Here is a head on shot of the train as it is coming around a corner. Notice the Colorado flag on the front? They changed the flag everytime they went into a different state.
The cars were in great shape, all cleaned and polished.
I took this shot from the car window as my husband was driving. We left the train in New Mexico and headed home on November the 4th. What a fun time we had. On days when the train was resting, we went to see The Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Flourissant Fossil Beds National Park and on the way home we went to Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
Here are some petrified tree stumps which are at Flourrisant Fossil Beds National Monument.
