Nice shot Ken! Check out my shot from the top of Elephant Head, directly behind 251, that I took back on the 27th of Feb. 1983. Couldn't do that today.

The clown 🤡 always has to be one step better than you, Ken, doesn’t he?
He’s not even close

Excellent capture - just before sunset, I'd guess. The consist is still hanging over the summit, no? Would there have been pushers on the rear? Fortunately this is still one of those scenic iconic rail venues that still sees trains, although freights are rare.
