A busy day chasing trains in SoCo.

  We knew the PRR heritage was in Denver this morning so we went out this morning to see if we could find it.

A soon as we got on the freeway, we had to turn around to get this -






Then we traveled a bit further north to Palmar Lake and got this -



Then on the way home got this -



With a couple goodies in the train.





We had to give up and head home but later found out that the locomotive had been through Monument but only 39 minutes earlier.  We ran out and searched.  On the way back from checking the Depot area I spotted it.



It was at one of the harder places to get a clean shot.  We waited forever to see if it would move but it never did.  On the way out we went by the lead locos only to see they were being fueled.  :|  Of course, if not for that, we probably would have missed it.

Edit, they work now, but still no avatar.

My friend was able to get these two shots of it as it passed through Castle Rock.  He works for Century Link and always has his radio with him listening.  Seems like quite a bit of NS paint has rolled up the Joint Line lately.  That CNW hopper looks like a fun project.  Thanks for the photos, Jason.
