Anniversary Steam
Author: MacBeau

The Grand Canyon Railway ran a nice edition to the Saturday morning train today. Thanks to a heads up from a fellow TO member, was able catch it climbing toward MP5 atop rail rolled in 1919.
Be of good cheer,

Wow--104-year old rail.  That's really good steel.  Road bed looks good, too.

Great pic thanks for posting. How do you get to this location? I’m trying to improve my Grand Canyon chasing issues. Thanks again.

Randy,
Go north on Hwy. 64, like you are going to the Grand Canyon, 11.4 miles from I-40 to Pronghorn Ranch Road and turn left. The railroad is ahead a couple of miles to the west, and when you get there you'll see Pittank Road off which this was shot.

Is that train at the beginning of running on an "up-hill?" 
Or, is he running on the "level", coming-off a "down-hill"?

Just into an uphill climb. Here is the view looking the other way from the bottom (TO link).
