The last train of the day

In the fading light of an October evening in 2007, I decided to hold out just little longer and see if just one more train would come by while there was enough sun for a picture. And one did:

Seen on October 3rd, 2007, between Boone and Ogden, IA. Construction of the new High Bridge was still in its early stages, so this eastbound coal train had slowed to around 30 miles an hour as it approached the original bridge, and would slow further before reaching it a few minutes after this picture was taken.
