Falling temps (and precip) along the Front Range
Author: BaltimoreOhio

Mixing work and vacation and taking in one of my favorite railfan locations, the Joint Line over the Palmer Divide.  The Saturday pics were taken in 65 degree temps on a beautiful sunny day.  For the Sunday pics, subtract 55 degrees and reduce visibility to a half-mile or so.  In No 1, we find 6129 awaiting its next assignment near the Greenland Open space.  No.2 shows a south bound approaching Palmer Lake.  No. 3 shows the same southbound passing through Palmer Lake, as we were enjoying lunch outside.

No.4 shows the DPU pushing a southbound at Monument.  Nos 5 and 6 show the same northbound (empty coal hoppers) at Palmer.

Nos 7,8 and 9 show the same southbound coal drag just south of Castle Rock.  You know, any poser can railfan on sunny, 72-degree day.  But only us hardcore railfans would exit a toasty warm vehicle on a 10-degree day with gusty winds and blowing snow just to record the action ;)   Thanks for looking!

Thanks for making the effort. The precip should make a dent in fire conditions

Good stuff, thanks for getting out there.
Interesting to see Palmer Lake looking the other way, lots of nice houses out there.
