Wintery trains

Even if you're not a fan of cold weather, you'll love these icy railroad shots submitted by our readers and railroad photographers.

On February 2, 2014, Colorado received a good amount of snow fall the night before that dropped almost a foot of snow in some places. Temperatures were well below freezing so nothing was melting. I decided to head out into the sub-zero temperatures to see what I could get. Fortunately, a southbound BNSF stack train wasn't far off. In Longmont, I first captured the train on Atwood Street. I decided to take a chance and drive to the overlook in Boulder to get another shot of the train. The sun decided to come out full which helped with the overall scene. Pictured here, a southbound stack train leaves the city of Boulder, Colo., with the Valmont Power Plant in the background after a good snow fall from the night before.
