Railfanning when the snow flies!

As you get older you find that going out into the weather is not something you look forward too. When I was younger, like 40 years ago, I saw the weather as a photo opportunity to make my shots a little more interesting. We are in the BN era and it would be 1974 or close to it. This train is coming off the new connection to the old GN mainline that connects to the new Latah Bridge and is about to cross the new Indian Canyon Bridge just east of the Greenwood Cemetery where the old SP&S route was 150 feet below this spot and I had the "1000 feet to tunnel" sign warning crews they were about to approach the tunnel entrance on the east end. Ah, the good old days.  Merry Christmas everyone!
