UP 6932
Title:  UP 6932
Description:  I'm leaving Salt Lake City on Amtrak at dawn and I spot the first DDA40X's I've ever seen. The quality is not good because I was shooting F1.8 at 1/30th second from a moving train and through window glass. Its turns out they would be my only pictures of these beasts.
