EMD Roar         
With a speed limit of 30 mph on the jointed rail and a steep grade too, train 636 was giving it all it had to make maybe 20 mph as it roared up to Eyota. After I took this shot, I wished I had taken video to capture the sound. Sharp eyes will see that the right side of the shot is distorted, I believe the image sensor has a screwed up some how.
