Latest from the Phx Sub
Author: RayLewis

Had some free time, but the Phx sub was frustrating on my last trip. Trains just weren't cooperating. But I stuck it out until the smoke from the Apple Fire in CA came in yesterday am, which cut my trip short.

1st shot - BNSF 7081, QPHXCHI3-31 at Daze on 7/31

2nd and 3rd shot BNSF 7155, ZWSPPHX7-30 at Grand View, AZ on 1 Aug.

Photo 1:  Image of the Day.  I love how you see the distant valley floor below, giving a real sense of how much altitude the train has gained.  Plus, that sun glint is perfect.

Nice group of shots! Were you able to get any drone shots of the derailment aftermath at Grand View?

I didnt get any shots. It was all cleaned up. There was a stack of wheels and ten or so cars pushed off to the side. But Mike Huggins did. I think he is still on TO.

Thank you all. I figured I'd get plenty of opportunities following the derailment....but the timing just didnt work out.  The smoke here in AZ is still real bad so not sure if I will get another chance to get out before returning to work next Monday.

Beautiful shots!   I have never been there, is the third shot from a hill or do you use a drone?

The 3rd one is from a drone. But I believe there is some elevation there to get a view. I just opted to try a different hike on the other side (which wasn't that great).
