One more line at the top, Frank, and you could start to create a Score.
Frank L Croston.: So I could, Ray... smile
I think these are quite pretty! You did great capturing this in a split second!
Frank L Croston.: It was a smart outfit, Elizabeth, thanks.
the train is a good catch Frank... but there is so much more around it to look at...
tell Ray that the lines are God's banjo strings grin

I thought this was a Droitwich Friday picture at first Frank.
Frank L Croston.: I can assure you, Santa fe is not remotely like Droitwich, Chad. smile
Not a good looking train is it Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Better looking than Penine north, Bud....smile
after the looooong freight trains, this lengthwise challenged train looks a bit comical. i love the livery
Frank L Croston.: It's doing its best, Ayush...smile It does look smart.
Love the angle here
Frank L Croston.: Steep climb, Chantal.
It's a double decker, and what a great colour scheme.
Frank L Croston.: It is rather smart, Brian.
A double-decker! Slightly psychedelic in decor!
Frank L Croston.: Yes, all good stuff, Tom.

I did think passenger trains are quite rare in US, apart from the commuter lines but Googling showed that they are more common that I thought. I know you were are roughly'; the railway runs down the central reservation for a while near to Santa Fe. Did you do the Turquoise Trail?
Frank L Croston.: I've never seen one in Flagstaff, probably more an urban thing,you are right about where we were, unfortunately we only had a couple of days,which we spent in Santa fe and Taos, so we didn't get a chance to do the turquoise trail, we'll add it to the list...smile
