With Scenery Like This You Didn't Even Miss The Steam Locomotive!
Author: LoggerHogger

While most railfans who came across a weathered water tank would have preferred to have a steam powered train next to it taking on water over any gas-mechanical rail car, this may be an exception.

The date is 1946 and Rio Grande Southern Goose #3 has paused for photos by the water tank at Trout Lake high in the Colorado Rockies. While a steam locomotive would also have been nice for this scene, the Goose fills the bill quite nicely.

The person who took this did an exclent job all around not just the focus on the goose.

Trout lake area and the red mountains behind it are a treasure of beauty.

I'm surprised someone hasn't ask the question: "Are they stopping to fill the radiator?"
