Worth the wait!

On one warm August day in 1995, I was waiting at Leyden, CO planning to take photos of the Southern Pacific trains on the former DRG&W mainline.  During my wait, the friendly railroad personnel came by on his hi-rail truck, tossed me a water bottle and told me that they have just finished making repairs to the track.   "Just wait another 30 minutes or so," he said, "we have a unit coal train coming by.  Still waiting.  The buzzing insect sound started to lessen, and lo and behold, then brand new SP GE AC44CW locomotives on the point.  I said to myself, it's definitely worth the wait.  Enjoy the history.
