The excitement of lights in the distance

Further waiting for trains on different spots only resulted in a higher number on the odometer. That’s one of this hobby’s greatest frustrations. When the sun was setting, we took a pause from driving and decided to try our luck at Battle Mountain. We were fortunate to get this freight in some beautiful light, followed by the eastbound California Zephyr. And that’s the opposite feeling of driving all the time: the excitement when light conditions are great and you finally see some lights in the distance.
After these shots, we continued our way towards northern California.
