I had just driven up from Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area in southwest Wyoming and I was going west along Interstate 80 when I came across this view of a passing train.

I liked the sense of a model train setup that was created by the distant view of the tracks and the train though at the time I wished that there had been a road down to the tracks so I could have gotten a closer view of the train.

I never realized the long line of cars that a train engine can pull till we started traveling in the American West. It seems the cars trail into the distance as far as the eye can see. Your capture brings back many memories of traveling through Iowa, Wyoming, Arizona and Colorado, and seeing that line of cars snake along the tracks through the countryside. Perfect perspective to give the look and feel of being there live! Especially love the backdrop of the red rocks - OUTSTANDING!

It certainly looks like a model train Jan, a great view. There are some long trains in Australia still mainly in the coal and iron mining areas,
