AMTK 364
Title:  AMTK 364
Description:  Amtrak's #8, The Empire Builder, is about 7 hours late due mostly to the below zero temperatures. The operator was someone I had talked to before taking the shot and he asked if I would send him a copy (which I did). You can see him in the window. The train seemed to be going very fast as it went by. As can be seen, the signal on the left has been passed but still hasn't fallen.
